Manchester City could make a surprise move for Tottenham’s Harry Winks this summer, and Jose Mourinho is considering selling the midfielder, according to the Sun.

Winks was a regular starter for Spurs last season but could find his place in the team under threat after the arrival of Pierre-Emile Hojbjgerg from Southampton.

And it is believed Pep Guardiola could offer Winks a way out of Tottenham.

The Sun claims City are keen on the England international and Mourinho could sanction a sale, if it raises in excess of £40 million that could go towards more new signings.

Winks has four years left on his current contract but it would be difficult to argue he is worth more than £40 million, despite his many strengths.

The 24-year-old is – and will likely remain – a useful squad player for Spurs, but cashing in may be wise if the Londoners need the money to strengthen in other areas.

That said, it would be a shame to see Winks go given he is a Tottenham fan and academy graduate.

Should Spurs cash in on Winks for £40 million? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.



  1. Tough one. Pros and cons to both sides of the argument.

    Pros to a move – creates a good chunk to reinvest and with Hojberg on board we wouldn’t be short in that area.

    Cons – we would be losing a player from the home grown quota. Wages aren’t astronomical and we lose a bit of depth created by Hojbergs arrival.

    In summary, if winks leaves and the money brings in Aarons and Wilson we can’t complain. However, that would surely mean Ndombele stays which would likely end our hopes of bringing in Skriniar and/or Dybala.

    Malang Sarr needs to be targeted to allow Foyth to move on which would bring a further £10 – £15m in. With Tanganga being able to cover across the back line, I think Sarr in and Foyth out would represent shrewd business.

    Rose has returned from his loan as well and is worth holding on to until the end of the season. If he goes on a free, good luck to him. He’s been a fantastic servant for a meagre £1.5m outlay all those years ago.

    Troy Deeney surely has to be worth a punt as well. I see nothing but positives in signing both him and Wilson given we should be targeting a full out assault on the EL and both domestic cups. We haven’t had any depth up front since the days of Berba, Keane and Defoe. Kane, Wilson and Deeney would be beneficial to the club and allow Kane to be fresher throughout the season.

    Our transfer business is far from over and moves for Aarons, Wilson, Sarr and a new CB and Striker would represent a great window regardless of wether winksy leaves or not.
