Fabrizio Romano has described a move to Everton as a ‘possibility’ for Spurs midfielder Harry Winks in a video on his Twitch channel.
Winks is one of the Tottenham players facing an uncertain future in North London.
He previously struggled for game-time under the likes of Jose Mourinho and Ryan Mason. And it seems that Nuno Espirito Santo may not see the 25-year-old as a prominent part of his plans.
Reports this week claimed that Winks is up for sale. And according to Romano, there is a chance that he could end up on Merseyside.
The journalist was asked about Winks during a video on his Twitch channel. And in response, he claimed that a move to Everton is a possibility.
Everton may set sights on Harry Winks with Benitez surely likely to target midfielders
It would be little surprise if Rafa Benitez targeted adding some more quality in the middle of the park.
His predecessor Carlo Ancelotti was not able to settle on a consistent midfield for various reasons last season.
Abdoulaye Doucoure and Allan were often impressive when they did play following their moves. However, both spent lengthy spells out of the side with injury.
Tom Davies enjoyed a much better year. But others struggled to stamp an authority on a place in the side.
Targeting Winks may divide Toffees fans
A move for Winks – who earns £50,000-a-week – would surely split the Everton fans. He is an England international. And making over 100 Premier League appearances for Spurs is an impressive achievement for an academy graduate.
Having said that, you can understand why Tottenham may be tempted to sell. He has struggled to kick on after looking extremely bright in his first few years in the first-team.
And that may concern Everton supporters as they look to improve on a mixed year last time out.
