Tottenham Hotspur are likely to be operating on a tight budget this summer, and they will be looking to generate money from player sales.
Fabio Paratici is reportedly working hard to sell some of the players in order to free up space and wage bills to build up a revamped Spurs squad under Nuno Espirito Santo.
Some players have asked to leave the club, and there are others for whom the club would consider realistic offers. One of such players is Harry Winks.
The 25-year-old midfielder, who progressed from the club’s youth academy, has made over 170 appearances for the club since making his debut in 2014.
Boost for Aston Villa
According to reports from football.london, Winks is not actively looking for a move elsewhere. He is ready to fight for his place and impress his new manager.
However, Spurs have other ideas. Paratici feels he is a player who could be sold for a decent fee, and the money could be reinvested into the squad.
The report claims that Spurs are “open to realistic offers for him”. He has a contract at the club till 2024, and Spurs can expect to command a sizeable transfer fee for him.
The news will come as a huge boost for Villa who are reportedly showing interest in signing the technically gifted young midfielder.
Dean Smith is looking to bolster the midfield this summer, and Villa have been linked with a host of midfielders including James Ward-Prowse and Emile Smith-Rowe alongside Winks.
