The Daily Express journalist Ryan Taylor believes Tottenham Hotspur may have to reduce their asking price for Harry Winks if they wish to offload the midfielder this summer. 

Winks struggled to get much game time during the second half of the last campaign, even though Oliver Skipp was out injured since February.

The 26-year-old is one of several players who Tottenham are expected to cash in on this summer, with the midfielder thought to have been informed that he can find a new club (Mirror).

According to The Daily Mail, Spurs are demanding a fee of around £25m for the England international this summer.

The Sun reported a couple of weeks ago that the Everton and Fulham were interested in signing Winks while Sevilla are also considering joining the race for the Tottenham midfielder.

The report added that the Spurs academy graduate was also of interest to Southampton but the Saints are likely to be priced out of the move due to the Lilywhites’ valuation of the player.

Taylor believes that Conte’s men may need to lower their demands to around £20m for Winks.

The journalist told GiveMeSport: “I think Spurs may have to reduce their asking price potentially to move him on. Probably £20m would be realistic, he’s still a good player, but £25m might be a bit steep.”

Spurs Web Opinion

I think Tottenham will end up having to sell Winks for around £20m unless they can get a bidding war going for him. I believe that he would be very good value at that price for the likes of Brighton, Leeds or Southampton, whose style of play will suit the Spurs man.
