Transfer news: Tottenham and Everton have hit a stalemate in Harry Winks talks

Football.London reports that Tottenham Hotspur and Everton have hit an impasse during talks for Harry Winks. Everton want to sign the midfielder on loan, while Tottenham are interested in a permanent sale.

Winks is not the preferred choice of Antonio Conte, having made only 19 appearances for the club in the League, mostly as a substitute last season. The midfielder could only manage one assist in the Premier League last season while failing to find the back of the net.

Everton are interested in the English midfielder, but now it seems that the talks have hit a roadblock. Crystal Palace is another team interested in the 26-year-old.

Spurs are said to be demanding £20 million for the midfielder, who is looking to leave N17 to get some more playing minutes. But now it has become difficult, with negotiations with Everton hitting a deadlock.

What next for Winks?

A Spurs academy graduate, Winks has been at the club for 20 long years. The midfielder was tipped to be the English Andres Iniesta by Mauricio Pochettino, but has fallen hugely short of such a comparison.

The 26-year-old failed to get minutes under both coaches Nuno Espirito Santo and Antonio Conte last season. Even when afforded opportunities, his performances were not consistent enough to seek Conte’s favour.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg started the campaign with Oliver Skipp and the arrival of Rodrigo Bentancur in January pushed Winks further down the pecking order. The summer arrival of Yves Bissouma will only make game time even more difficult to come by.

Winks will hope that both the clubs can come to an agreement so he can play for more minutes and make the English squad for the World Cup in Qatar in November. A defensive midfielder by trade, he can also play as a central midfielder when required.

It remains what happens with the midfielder this summer. But Spurs fans will be hoping for a happy outcome for the player, who has spent the majority of his playing career at the London side.
