Tottenham tipped to slash Winks price tag after Everton update - Robinson

Tottenham will slash their price tag for Harry Winks in 2022 if the player continues to be on the fringes of Nuno Espirito Santo’s side.

That is the view of former White Hart Lane number one Paul Robinson, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the 25-year-old’s future in north London.

According to The Times (September 13th), Spurs were open to offers in the region of £40million for the centre-midfielder in the summer window.

The price tag is said to have put off potential suitors Everton and Aston Villa from pursuing a deal.

Winks has three years remaining on his contract with Spurs.

When asked by Football Insider‘s Dylan Childs for his assessment of the news, Robinson said: “Winks needs a break.

“He needs to go to a club week in, week out. If Nuno does not have him as a big part of his plans then he needs to leave and play regularly. Wherever that may be.

“He is a player that I rate very, very highly. I think he gets into most other Premier League teams.

“Winks is never injured, he is always available and is capable of producing seven, eight out of 10 performances on a weekly basis when he is given a run of games.

“Let’s be honest, £40million is a lot for a player that isn’t getting a game. A player is only worth what another club is willing to pay. I think that price tag will drop significantly because there was obviously no willing buyers at that price in the summer.”
