Leicester City manager Enzo Maresca believes that Harry Winks is still good enough to play for England.

It was only a few years ago that Winks was looked at as Tottenham and England’s next big midfield hope, with the centre-mid playing a key role in Spurs’ progression to the Champions League final in 2019.

However, the 27-year-old subsequently endured some difficult years, finding it hard to get game time following Mauricio Pochettino’s exit from the North London club while also struggling to remain fit.

The midfielder shows glimpses of his old self during the second half of his loan spell at Sampdoria last season, which convinced Leicester to pay £10m for his services in the summer.

That has proven to be an inspired decision by the Foxes as Winks has dominated the Championship so far and has been one of the main reasons why they currently sit at the top of the table.

Could Harry Winks get another England call-up?

Maresca believes that the former Tottenham man, who has won 10 caps for England, is good enough to earn a recall to the Three Lions set-up.

When asked about Winks making it back to the international set-up, he said (via talkSPORT’s Jason Bourne): “I don’t have any doubt, Harry Winks could be a good player for an international team. He’s helping us a lot, working fantastic. He has the level to be at the top.”

Spurs Web Opinion

We know for a fact that Winks’ ability has never been an issue, based on how he played from 2017 to 2019. The midfielder was evidently struggling for confidence during his final couple of seasons at Spurs and he made the right decision to step down to the Championship as he needed regular game time to get his career back on track.
