Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho is reportedly considering selling midfielder Harry Winks. Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola eyeing up a transfer.

Winks signed a new five-year deal last summer and had an important role to play for Spurs this season. The 24-year-old was a key figure for Mourinho after his arrival in November.

Indeed, he played the full 90 minutes in 13 of his side’s final 17 Premier League games. However, according to The Sun, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s arrival from Southampton has cast doubt on Winks’ future.

City boss Guardiola is a “serious admirer” of Winks. Guardiola is keen to see how good the midfielder can become with a key role at the Etihad Stadium. Mourinho reportedly knows Winks could struggle to fit his style of play going forwards and is “desperate” to assert his personality into the team.

As such, the Portuguese manager is willing to let Winks go if City – or another club – come up with bids of at least £40million. Additionally, raising such funds would allow Spurs to spend.
