Inter Milan and Roma are both interested in making a move for Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Harry Winks in the January transfer window, according to CalcioMercato.

The 25-year-old has struggled for regular first team football under Nuno Espirito Santo this season, having only started one Premier League match with the Portuguese instead preferring to select Oliver Skipp, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Tanguy Ndombele as his midfield options.

A switch to Roma would see the England international reunite with former boss Jose Mourinho, who also overlooked Winks as a regular during his time in charge of Spurs last season with the player making just nine starts in the top flight (transfermarkt).

Winks was linked with a move away from his boyhood club during the January window, having been rumoured to wanted by La Liga outfit Valencia on a loan deal for the remainder of the campaign (AS).

Winks had been a regular under Mauricio Pochettino but has since seen his career stall under Mourinho and Nuno.   

He played with more confidence and a forward-thinking attitude under Pochettino with arguably his best performance coming at the Santiago Bernabeu as a 21-year-old in a Champions League tie against Real Madrid and is now a shadow of his former self.

A move away from Tottenham is exactly what he needs to rejuvenate his career with Oliver Skipp having already proven in the first few matches of this season that he is a far better player.
