Tottenham Hotspur are open to the idea of Harry Winks leaving amidst interest from Valencia
Spurs are open to the idea of Winks leaving with the La Liga side looking to bolster their squad after a mass exodus in the summer. However, Tottenham’s demands have seemingly stalled talks for a possible transfer.
The report mentions that Spurs are only interested in a permanent transfer for the Englishman, and not a loan move. This is inconvenient for Valencia’s owner Peter Lim who is not interested in spending cash as he looks to sell the club. (h/t Express)
Winks first broke into the Spurs team under Mauricio Pochettino in 2016. Since then, he has been a regular fixture in the team, playing an important role in the club’s 2019 UEFA Champions League final run.
The 24-year-old started this season off in good fashion. He started the first 3 league games but has since faded out of the first-team picture.
In total, he has just 5 league starts this season. This is certainly a big fall from the 2019/20 campaign, where he started 26 league games for the club.
Jose Mourinho has looked set on using a midfielder three of Tanguy Ndombele, Moussa Sissoko, and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg. In light of this, the 24-year-old has fallen down in the pecking order.
Any potential move might also be affected by Winks’ desire to get more first-team minutes. The European Championship starts this summer and the midfielder could want more playing time to be selected by Gareth Southgate.

His situation in London has thus attracted interest from La Liga. Valencia are out of the relegation zone on only goal difference and would hope that they could bolster their form if they manage to get in quality players in January. (h/t Express)
It, however, remains to be seen if they are able to secure Winks’ signing before the end of the month.
