According to Michael Bridge, Tottenham and Everton are yet to agree on the structure of any potential transfer for midfielder Harry Winks, with the Toffees looking for a loan with an obligation to buy. 

The Athletic previously reported that Everton preferred a loan move, but Bridge now claims the Toffees would be willing to sign an obligation agreement.

Winks played a bit-part role in Spurs’ Premier League campaign last season, making only 19 appearances for the Lilywhites (TransferMarkt).

Antonio Conte seemed to prefer options such as Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Oliver Skipp, and Rodrigo Bentancur in his midfield pivot.

The arrival of Yves Bissouma now means that Winks’ game-time is highly unlikely to increase next season, subsequently paving the way for a potential departure from North London this summer (Football.London).

Sky Sports have reported that Everton are interested in providing the 26-year-old with a way out.

However, Bridge now claims that Spurs are said to want a permanent move away for their academy graduate, whilst the Toffees prefer a loan move with an obligation to buy the player.

Spurs Web Opinion

I won’t be happy to see Winksy go as he’s a Spurs boy through and through. But I am thrilled to see Spurs actively trying to ship out players who do not reach the required standards of where the club is aiming to be.

If the transfer goes through as expected, Winks will have a chance to rejuvenate his career and establish himself in a Premier League side.
