Exclusive: Pundit on Everton signing Spurs star potentially after big Athletic reveal - 'Definitely'

Kevin Phillips “could definitely see” Tottenham midfielder Harry Winks moving to a Spanish club next year.

The former Sunderland and England striker, speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs, is adamant that the style of play in La Liga would suit the 24-year-old.

The Athletic revealed earlier this week that the England international “has admirers in La Liga” ahead of a potential exit in 2021.

Winks has fallen down the pecking order at Spurs following the arrival of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg in the summer.

This site revealed that Everton are also monitoring the midfielder’s situation in north London ahead of the January transfer window.

When asked by Football Insider for his assessment of Winks’ future, Phillips said:

“As a ball player, I think Spain would suit his game.

“He is not about the hustle and bustle. He likes to get on the ball and has a great range of passing.

“My only criticism is that he needs to be more adventurous with his passing. A lot of it is sideways passing, it is too safe.

“Going abroad would help him and I think it would suit his style a bit. We have seen other players going abroad and flourishing.

“I could definitely see it happening because the style of play would suit Harry Winks even though I would prefer him to stay in England.

“I never like to see great players leaving the Premier League but it is clear that he is not going to play week in, week out at Tottenham.

“I assume that if he becomes available a number of Premier League teams would be interested.”
