(Not Alli) Barcelona Sporting Director Interested In 21-Year Old Tottenham Youngster After Being Impressed By Champions League Performance

Published

on

La Liga giants Barcelona have set their sights on Harry Winks after the 21-year-old managed to impress one and all with his impressive performances against Real Madrid both at Santiago Bernabeu and Wembley.

Tottenham were simply irresistible against the Galacticos in both the legs and while the likes of Dele Alli, Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen grabbed all the headlines, Winks managed to outperform his Madrid counterparts, especially at the Wembley. The youngster managed to silence the threat of Luka Modric and Toni Kroos and for all right reasons, received a lot of plaudits.

And the Evening Standard claims that Barcelona sporting director Robert Fernandez was present at the game at Santiago Bernabeu. While it is reported that he came with an intention of tracking Christian Eriksen, who might be a potential target for the Catalans next summer, he was left impressed with the way Winks controlled the tempo of the game.

Winks’ growth has simply been dazzling, to say the least. While it is thought that his long-term future lies with Tottenham, the youngster now has two of the biggest European clubs as his admirers. Prior to the fixture at Wembley, the likes of Dele Alli and Harry Kane were the talk of the town, but soon after the final whistle, it was Winks who earned the approbation.

“Name me a better English midfielder than Harry Winks. I do not see anyone in the Premier League who is superior to him right now and I believe he can become one of the finest midfielders this country has seen,” wrote Danny Murphy in his column on the Standard.

Safe to say Winks has matured a lot under Pochettino. But then, Winks got his first team opportunity because both Dembele and Wanyama were nursing injuries and now with Dembele back fit, it remains to be seen how Pochettino works with the 21-year-old. The Argentine has already branded Winks as ‘Little Iniesta’ and he has so far lived up to the billing.

He has been in brilliant form lately and should he manage to continue his impressive form, he is well expected to get a call to Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
