La Liga Valencia is keeping an eye on Tottenham midfielder Harry Winks, with a possible loan in sight.
The Englishman became a regular in the Spurs midfield during Mauricio Pochettino’s time at the club, a position he held after the arrival of José Mourinho in November 2019.
However, the signing of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg from Southampton last summer has limited Winks’ time in the starting XI as the 24-year-old has only five Premier League starts so far this season.
The Daily Mail report that Valencia are monitoring the disadvantaged Spurs midfielder as they look to bolster their squad in a bid to avoid relegation from La Liga.
Javi Gracia’s team is just three points above the drop zone, and the former Watford coach, who is a ‘big fan’ of Winks from his time in the Premier League, has pointed to the Spurs midfielder. as a transfer target for January.
Valencia is in the midst of a financial crisis, with many of its stars proposed to leave Mestalla as the club seeks to generate transfer funds. Subsequently, a permanent move for Winks appears to be out of the question, although the Spanish side is hopeful that a loan agreement can be reached before the transfer window is over.
It is already known that the Spurs rejected a loan request from Los Che, although a second offer is likely to be presented in the near future.
With the European Championship taking place later this year, Winks is eager to play first-team football as he looks to secure his place on Gareth Southgate’s England team this summer.
The midfielder recently described his situation at the North London club as ‘difficult’, and a move away from Tottenham Hotspur Stadium could well be on the horizon.
