Frank Lampard called off Everton’s pursuit of Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Harry Winks

According to the Times (Subscription Required), Frank Lampard had a ‘change of heart’ and decided against Everton signing Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Winks.

The 26-year-old midfielder has been on the Toffees’ radar for a considerable part of this summer transfer window. However, they have retracted any interest in him and he apparently has no interest from another English club.

Spurs, keen to get him off their books, have offered his services to clubs in Italy and Spain. It remains to be seen if any deal materialises but it doesn’t seem like Winks is here to stay for long.

Harry Winks on his way out to Everton?
Harry Winks no longer on Everton’s radar.

He was left out of Antonio Conte’s matchday squads in the 4-1 win against Southampton and the 2-2 draw against Chelsea earlier this month. Yves Bissouma’s arrival has arguably been the final nail in his coffin at N17.

No Everton move for Winks

Rodrigo Bentancur coming to the club from Juventus late in the winter transfer window was the first indication that our Italian manager doesn’t favour Winks a lot.

Being from England, there is always the outside chance of Winks making Gareth Southgate’s 26-man shortlist for the FIFA World Cup in Qatar later this year.

But for that, the Spurs star would have to be at the top of his game. There is no shortage of competition in England’s midfield with the likes of Jude Bellingham threatening Declan Rice and Kalvin Phillips’ starting spots.

Even if he doesn’t make the World Cup squad, it’s not the end of the world for him. He should rather be focused on getting his career back on track.

Having started in the UEFA Champions League final in 2019, Winks certainly showed everyone that he has the credentials to rub shoulders with the elite. He just needs a team and a manager that will allow him to show it.
