Rangers have been reportedly supplied the prospect to signal Tottenham midfielder Harry Winks as Spurs look to money in on the England star – a participant that Graeme Souness criticised in 2019, however did state is “neat and tidy”.
Winks, 26, has fallen down the pecking order at Tottenham. Rodrigo Bentancur joined the membership in January and have become first selection instantly. Spurs have signed Yves Bissouma from Brighton this summer season, for £30million.
With Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Oliver Skipp additionally at Spurs, Winks is now fifth selection and must go. Spurs have knowledgeable the participant he can go away the membership this summer season, if a charge of £20million is placed on the desk.
That would blow Rangers’ present club-record signing of Tore-Andre Flo out of the water – however a mortgage could possibly be real looking. Speaking about Winks in 2019, Rangers icon Souness mentioned Winks must do extra – however is “neat and tidy”.
“He’s neat and tidy,” Souness advised Sky Sports PL on 10/02/2019. “I’m trying to find nice words to say about him as a young boy. I was a young midfielder at 24, I would have wanted to do more than he does.
“Passing it five yards that way and ten yards this way. I think he [Winks] recycles the ball really well. I want more. I want him to do it further up the pitch and I want him hurting teams.”
Rangers supplied Winks: Souness criticised him in 2019
While branding the Spurs academy graduate as neat and tidy, Souness is bang on. Winks must do extra in an attacking sense and it’s one thing Jose Mourinho tried to get out of him through the Portuguese gaffer’s reign.
But it didn’t work. Winks is the form of participant in a position to supply a defensive display, dictating the tempo. He must play in a 4-3-3 system with two box-to-box midfielders alongside him, to go with him.
If Rangers are after a midfielder with Champions League expertise, one which terrorised Real Madrid in 2017, that may hold issues ticking over – Winks is right. He could be the proper anchor to Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s midfield.
