Leeds boost after Everton decided against Harry Winks move - TBR View
Leeds United have received a potential boost in the transfer market, with I News reporting that Everton have decided against a move for Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Harry Winks.
Winks looks set to leave Spurs in this window. He struggled for game-time under Antonio Conte. And he has fallen further down the pecking order with the club signing Yves Bissouma.
It had appeared that he was most likely to end up at Everton. In fact, reports on Thursday morning claimed that he was expected to seal a move to Goodison Park. However, it now appears that that is not the case.
I News reports that Frank Lampard has now decided against a move for Winks. The Toffees plan to pursue other targets.
That news may alert Leeds amid reports this week that Jesse Marsch’s men have joined the race to sign Winks.
The Liverpool Echo reported that the Whites were keen on the 26-year-old. But they were behind Everton in the race with talks underway for the £20 million-rated England international.
Obviously, with Everton backing away from a deal, it seems that a move to Elland Road has become a little more likely.
Everton decided against Winks move
Some Leeds fans may actually have some concerns about Everton deciding against a move for Winks. He has not had the best few years in North London.
At his best, he is capable of dictating games at the very highest level. However, Tottenham supporters have not seen Winks kick on to the next level.
Perhaps playing regularly will do wonders with Winks. Mauricio Pochettino once claimed he was ‘amazing‘.
But Everton only just finished above Leeds last season. If the Toffees do not feel that he is worth spending £20 million on, the alarm bells should arguably be ringing at Elland Road.
