Opinion: Harry Winks – Analysing whether or not the midfielder is done at Spurs

With the Euros around the corner, it is no secret that Harry Winks would like to be getting more minutes to impress Southgate and cement his spot in the national camp (Sky Sports).

As a result of the lack of game time this season, there have been transfer rumours linking Winks with a move away from the club, with Valencia being one team mentioned.

However, I feel that Winks is still an integral part of the Spurs set up right now and him moving on could be costly to the club.

With Mourinho often playing a 4-3-3, I feel Winks’ inclusion, especially against attacking teams, could be extremely useful as he provides that extra defensive resilience while managing to provide those often-crucial long balls.

With Dele being linked to PSG and Lo-Celso out injured, I feel that a Winks partnership with Højbjerg in midfield could prove to be important and more beneficial than that of Sissoko.

This is because Winks provides extra attacking fluidity and his agility often makes him more impactful than Sissoko in midfield, despite playing in a defensive role.

With Ndombele proving his worth time and again in the number 10 role, I believe the best option at the moment involved Højbjerg holding the midfield and Winks bridging the gap between the two, something that Sissoko struggles to do at times. 

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. The fact that he is still being given more playing opportunities proves he isn’t done, but whether he finds these opportunities sufficient is an entirely different debate?
