Former Spurs midfielder Michael Brown believes Harry Winks will attract interest from rival clubs in the summer.

Three years after breaking into the side under Mauricio Pochettino, Winks has established himself as one of the most important cogs in the Spurs side.

The youngster has put in some impressive displays in the Champions League over the last couple of seasons that have shot him to the limelight but he failed to kick on as expected at the start of this campaign.

After Jose Mourinho replaced Pochettino as the head coach in North London, the 24-year-old initially found himself struggling for game time under the Portuguese.

However, he seems to have now won his place back in the side and Mourinho singled him out for special praise during Friday’s press conference on the back of his recent displays (Football.London).

Brown believes that there will be a lot of demand for the England midfielder if the Spurs boss decides that he’s not part of his plans.

When asked about the speculation surrounding Winks’ future, Brown told Football Insider: “For sure people will be watching Harry Winks because he can play that holding role.

“He’s so comfortable on the football, there are many teams who would love Harry Winks, that’s for sure. He’s set for a real run of games and he’s a wonderful player.”

The Mirror claimed earlier this month that Manchester United have made Winks one of their main transfer targets in the summer with a potential £40million offer.

Giving the increasing importance of deep-lying playmakers to how sides play, Winks is likely one of the most valuable players in our squad. Along with Aurier, I feel he has one of the players to have shown the most improvement since Mourinho took over a little over three months ago.
