Tottenham reportedly rejected an offer from Everton during the transfer window for midfielder Harry Winks, according to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano.
The transfer guru claims there was a ‘serious opportunity’ for the 25-year-old to make the move to Merseyside, however, Spurs were quick to dismiss a potential move.
The England international has found game time hard to come by in the last couple of seasons in North London and has slipped down the pecking order.
He started just nine Premier League games during the last campaign, and that trend does not look to be changing, with Nuno Espirito Santo starting him just once so far this season.
Speaking about Spurs’ decision over the summer on his Here We Go podcast, Romano said:
“Winks had a serious opportunity with Everton because Everton were really appreciating this player but ‘no way’ for Tottenham.
“They wanted an important proposal. They were not prepared to sell Winks for low money.”

Winks has struggled to progress his game at Spurs since emerging as such an important player in Mauricio Pochettino’s system a few seasons ago. A move to a side like Everton could have been beneficial for him, where he would have had a more consistent base to play week in, week out.
