Tottenham: Tom Barclay surprised by lack of interest in Harry Winks

Tottenham: Tom Barclay surprised by lack of interest in Harry Winks -Tottenham Hotspur News

There has been a surprising lack of interest in Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Harry Winks this summer, according to journalist Tom Barclay.

The Lowdown

After it had become clear that he was excess to Antonio Conte’s requirements at Spurs, the former England international was placed on the club’s transfer list.

With the Italian only willing to work with players who will be involved in his first-team going forward, the 26-year-old has been training away from the squad at Hotspur Way in an apparent snub from his manager.

According to The Athletic’s Charlie Eccleshare, Winks has received interest from Leeds United and Everton, but neither of those two clubs have pushed any further, leaving the midfielder’s Lilywhites future surrounded by uncertainty.

The Latest

Barclay has been left surprised by the apparent lack of interest in both Winks and his Tottenham team-mate Sergio Reguilon this summer.

When questioned by GiveMeSport over whether any enquiries have been made for the Spurs duo, the journalist claimed: “Not that I know of in the last two days or so. Harry Winks, it feels like it might go to the end of the window, but I’m surprised about the lack of interest in both of them really.”

The Verdict

Winks certainly appears to be out of favour in Conte’s squad, given his lack of playing time since the manager arrived in north London.

Under the Italian, the midfielder has amassed 17 bit-part appearances in the Premier League, and he is yet to even make it into a matchday squad so far this season.

Spurs fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the season against Man City?

With a couple of top-flight clubs interested in his services earlier on in the summer, as mentioned above, it does seem a surprise to see the 26-year-old still at Hotspur Way this late on in the transfer window.

Therefore, if no fresh interest emerges between now and 1 September, this could end up being a long season for the 10-cap England international.
