Report claims Spanish club could pursue Spurs midfielder after potential takeover

According to a report in Spanish publication Sport (as relayed by Football.London), Valencia could make a move for Harry Winks in the summer transfer window.

Winks has struggled to break into Tottenham’s starting eleven for the majority of the season, with most of the midfielder’s minutes coming in the Europa League and domestic club competitions.

With Tanguy Ndombele adapted to playing in a deeper role alongside Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Giovani Lo Celso on the verge of returning from injury, Winks faces an uphill battle to force himself into the Spurs side ahead of this summer’s Euros.

Sport claim that the Tottenham midfielder would prefer a move to a La Liga club at the end of the season.

It is claimed that Valencia made a loan offer for the 25-year-old during the January transfer window but saw their approach having been rebuffed by the North Londoners.

With the La Liga club said to be subject to a takeover bid by the crown prince of Southern Malaysia state Johor, Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim, it is reported that they could attempt to sign Winks on a permanent basis in the summer.

Spurs Web Opinion

Barring a major turn of events, Winks’ minutes are likely to be restricted to the Europa League for the remainder of the season. It does increasingly seem like this is likely to be the 24-year-old’s final season at Spurs. The style of play in La Liga would be a very good fit for someone with Winks’ attributes and I can certainly see him thriving in Spain.
