Harry Winks: Everton interested in Tottenham midfielder | Transfer Centre News

Everton are interested in signing Tottenham midfielder Harry Winks, who has been told by Tottenham to find a new club this summer.

Winks, 26, made just nine appearances in the Premier League last season with his last full 90 minutes coming in February in the 4-0 win over Leeds at Island Road.

Ben Grounds, a journalist for Sky Sports Football, said:

Frank Lampard He has understandably been forced to be cautiously selective with his transfer targets so far this summer.

“There is expected to be a show at some point Evertonmost valuable asset, Dominic Calvert-Lewin And the RicharlisonBut Lampard can only spend what goes into the club.

“With this in mind, the need to reinforce depleted areas must be fulfilled by leaving players with a dose of realism and no shortage of creativity.

“The Defender James Tarkowski Arrives in a free transfer deal from landing Burnley While Harry Winks He would bring more experience to his midfield having played 128 Premier League games with Tottenham.

“Critics will point to the two league goals and three assists he mustered in those games, but the Winks have been in need of a move for some time – more than they hold up when compared to Everton’s underperforming midfielders last season.

“It is more progressive than late Fabian Delphwhose strength lies in recovering the ball but not necessarily playing purposeful passes with it.

Unloved by a string of Spurs coaches since Mauricio Pochettino, under whom he has made his first out of 10 caps, Winks can revive his career under Lampard at Goodison Park.

“He still has two years left on his current contract with Tottenham, so Everton would ideally like to take out a loan rather than meet the player’s £20m valuation.

Winks will meet Dele Alli, who has joined Everton from Tottenham on an initial free transfer with appearances additions.

“For a club like Everton, there is a waiting game. Tottenham’s signing of Yves Bisoma has allowed the Winks team to develop.

“Lampard is waiting to see where – and in fact if – Conor Gallagher Fits in with Thomas Tuchel’s plans for Chelsea. This is another possible moving piece.

Emmanuel Denis in Watford It has been linked as a possible replacement for Richarlison. For now, Lampard should proceed to target the low-hanging fruit that was easily plucked from the spurs tree.”

Ajax presents another Bergwijn offer

Ajax will make another bid for Tottenham winger Stephen Bergwijn, but Tottenham will not accept offers under £25m.

The Dutch club, which has wanted Bergwijn since January, is set to increase their interest in the 24-year-old after agreeing to sell striker Sebastian Haller to Borussia Dortmund for £30.2 million.

Bergwijn wants first-team football before the Winter World Cup in Qatar and is eager to sign for Ajax.

Spurs believe the Dutchman still has a great future elsewhere.
