Harry Winks is reportedly one of the Tottenham players that manger Mauricio Pochettino reportedly plans to build the team around, a decision that will be justified in the long run.
According to the Daily Mail, the Spurs boss views him as one of his central players alongside England teammates Dele Alli and Harry Kane.
The 23-year-old signed a new long-term contract with the North London club this week and the report details that he’s a favourite of Pochettino.
It is understood that Winks will remain an ever-present in the centre of the park, despite the arrival of club-record signing Tanguy Ndombele and any extra arrivals would not impact him.
Pochettino is clearly a big admirer of the England international and it’s easy to see why.
The central midfielder is technically gifted on the ball and has the range of passing to help dictate play for his team.
He played 41 times across all competitions last season, but injuries disrupted his year and he didn’t start in every game.
Spurs look set to use Winks as one of their lynchpins moving forward and it’s a wise decision from the manager.
He can help influence a style of play that helps the team boss possession and he understands the club perfectly after coming through the academy ranks.
His performances in the big games prove he’s grown as an individual and warrants a regular spot in the team.
