Winks would probably favour a move to Spain if he were to move abroad, given the fact he has Spanish grandparents and has previously admitted in an interview with ESPN that he has a connection with the country.

Everton and Leeds United were both said to have shown interest in the player earlier in the window but did not follow up with anything formal, at this rate with the season set to begin, Winks needs to find a new club and fast, while potentially having to be open to playing in other countries on the continent.
