Leeds United have entered the transfer race for Everton Target and Tottenham midfielder Harry Winks. according to a report.
The Liverpool Echo claim the longer Winks stays at Tottenham this summer, the more his current value could fall as a number of Premier League teams are keen to bring him on board.
After Leeds survived relegation on the final day of the Premier League season, Jesse Marsch needs to improve and add to his squad ahead of the new season.
Even more so if the American loses star man Kalvin Phillips – it has been suggested a £43million fee has been agreed with Manchester City for the England midfielder.
Leeds and Everton are two of the two clubs mentioned but could the Toffees have an advantage if Spurs sign Richarlison from the Merseyside club?
Only time will tell, as the 2022 summer transfer window enters a fairly busy period with teams returning to preseason and managers wanting players through their doors before taking off on their big tours.
WINKS ONCE VS STEVEN GERRARD
From being an England international to fighting for the squad on matchday at Tottenham, Winks’ career has been full of ups and downs.
The 26-year-old has two years left on his contract at North London but it has long appeared his time at the club has come to an end.
The fact that his boyhood club are willing to let him go at a time when they are riding such a high wave only goes to show how his career needs to be resumed.
But it wasn’t all bleak for the technical midfielder, who his former team-mate and now Watford player Moussa Sissoko once compared to Steven Gerrard in 2018.
said Sissoko French outlet Foot Mercato: “Winks is a very good player who reminds me of Steven Gerrard. Has the same profile. He’s developing, he’s confident. He’s in the England team, which proves he’s a good player. It will explode in the years to come.”
