Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is targeting a summer move for Tottenham midfielder Harry Winks, according to the Mirror.
After initially looking like he may lose his place in the team under Jose Mourinho, Winks has become a key player of late. He was instrumental in the victory over Manchester City and played an important role as Spurs won at Aston Villa on Sunday.
Winks was responsible for the clever through ball to Steven Bergwijn which led to the crucial penalty just before half-time at Villa Park. It was a moment that defined the 24-year-old’s impact in recent weeks – but could Tottenham face a battle to keep him this summer?
The Mirror claims Solskjaer has told friends that Winks is among his top transfer targets going into next season. It is believed United could sell Paul Pogba and use some of the money to make a move for Winks, who is apparently valued at £40 million by Spurs.
Despite that reported valuation, we think Tottenham would demand much more for an in-form English player, and it’s unlikely the Londoners would be keen to strengthen a rival. But it’s a story to keep an eye on nonetheless.
