Report: 'Very, very good' Tottenham player is now in talks over joining another Premier League club
Midfielder Harry Winks is in talks with Everton over a move to Goodison Park from Tottenham Hotspur this summer.
The Liverpool Echo report that Spurs would not stand in his way if the right offer was made during a summer when they are doing plenty to reshape their squad.
That involves outgoings to balance the books and get players than Antonio Conte does not have at the heart of his plans out the door.
Last summer, when Rafa Benitez was at Everton and Nuno Espirito Santo was at Tottenham, Winks was linked with a switch to Merseyside.

And it seems the move is back on the cards, because Everton and Spurs have held early talks over a deal for Winks.
Frank Lampard has identified his midfield as an area he wants to improve going into next season and thinks Winks can help with that.
Despite the move not getting done last year, there is apparently hope from Winks himself and both clubs that a deal can be sorted this time around.
Winks would be keen on a move to Goodison and just wants to play regular football again next season.
Despite that confidence, the report says that at least three more Premier League clubs are keen on Winks this summer.
Winks initially had a bit of a resurgence under Conte, who kept him around in January, and was described as ‘very, very good’ by Spurs legend Robbie Keane after a win against Leeds in the early weeks of the Italian’s reign.
Yves Bissouma also dropped a hint over his new squad number this week, indicating he could take the number eight jersey… currently worn by Winks.
