Harry Winks could be given the green light to leave Tottenham Hotspur this summer should Jose Mourinho manage to land Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, according to a report from the Daily Mirror.
The Mirror reports that Spurs are battling Everton for the Southampton midfielder. The Guardian reported this week that Tottenham were growing increasingly confident that they would land the Dane as part of a swap deal involving Kyle Walker-Peters.
And it appears that the right-back may not be the only player to potentially move on should Hojbjerg arrive.
The Daily Mirror reports that Winks is the most likely player to leave the club should Hojbjerg join. It is claimed that Mourinho will be working with limited funds and thus, players may have to be moved on.
The Mirror adds that Winks is valued between £25-£30 million.
TBR View: Letting Winks leave would be ruthless move from Mourinho
Winks would likely fall down the pecking order if Hojbjerg arrives. However, it would arguably be a ruthless move should Tottenham open the door for the 24-year-old to go.
He has made 29 Premier League appearances this season. And there is no question that he has produced some outstanding performances during his time in the first-team.
It will be very interesting to see where Winks ends up should he leave. He is certainly good enough to be a key player at the highest level.
And he may feel that he has a point to prove to his boyhood club if he is allowed to go following the arrival of Hojbjerg.
