Earlier this week, a report from The Times (as cited by The Boot Room) stated that the 25-year-old is unwanted at Tottenham Hotspur as Nuno Espirito Santo is looking to clear out a sizeable number of players in order to fund his preferred transfers.
Does The Move Make Any Sense?
Having fallen out of favour under Jose Mourinho (and then Ryan Mason), Harry Winks managed to start just nine games in the Premier League last season. The lack of regular game-time certainly left him frustrated as Gareth Southgate dropped him from the England squad and even left him out of consideration for the Euro Championship 2020.
So, Everton’s interest in the England international has come as a bit of surprise as he has been in pathetic form for a couple of seasons now.
It’s quite understandable that Rafael Benitez wants to improve upon his options at the centre of the park, but Winks is far from the ideal candidate for the job. He isn’t better than anyone already present at the club – be it Adebayo Doucoure, Allan, Andre Gomes or Tom Davies. It’s obvious that the fans will feel let down if Winks – who has barely ever managed to achieve consistency at the club he has been playing for all his life – actually ends up moving to the Goodison Park.
Everton should instead step up their pursuit for Juventus’ Aaron Ramsey instead. The Wales international’s £6.8 million annual wages is reportedly bothering the Serie A side’s finances, and they could sell him this summer to balance out the books.
Given that The Toffees have already signed Demarai Gray and Andros Townsend, Aaron Ramsey will be an exceptional addition during the rebuild.
Nonetheless, if Benitez’s sole motive is to add depth in central midfield, Winks could turn out to be a decent long-term squad acquisition as he is unlikely to cost a lot. However, there is no way he should be considered as a first-team starter.
