WINKS IN EYES OF TOFFEES

- By Tom Hopkinson

EVERTON have been keeping tabs on Harry Winks’ situation at Tottenham.

The Spurs midfielder has had two disappoint­ing campaigns in north London since falling out of favour with Jose Mourinho.

This season he has been limited to just four Premier League appearance­s.

Two of them have come during new manager Antonio Conte’s four top-flight games in charge and the 25-year-old is hopeful of getting more regular action under the Italian.

But if the opportunit­y arises to move to a club at which he will get more game time, then he knows he will have to consider it.

Whether or not Everton and boss Rafa Benitez take their interest further in January remains to be seen, given their plans have been muddied by the departures of director of football Marcel Brands and head of recruitmen­t and developmen­t Gretar Steinsson.

But Winks, who has won 10 England caps, still has admirers at Goodison Park.

And, if a concrete offer arrives for the midfielder, Spurs chairman Daniel Levy will likely consider it in a bid to help new boss Conte rebuild his squad.
