After a brilliant start to the season, Nuno Espirito Santo’s tenure in charge of Tottenham Hotspur has taken a turn, and the Lilywhites now find themselves eighth in the table. 

Despite topping the table after three games, defeats to Arsenal, Chelsea and Crystal Palace saw Santo’s side plummet down the table, and the form of Harry Kane will also worry Spurs fans.

The England captain is still yet to score in the league this season, and was criticised for his performances against both Chelsea and Arsenal.

Despite their poor form and the busy schedule ahead with Europa Conference League promising to bolster the club’s calendar, it appears that Santo is willing to let one of his midfielders leave in January.

That’s according to CaughtOffside, who are reporting that Harry Winks could be allowed to leave on loan when the window reopens in January, with Everton his most likely destination.

The report states that the Englishman will push for a move away from the club as soon as possible, having fallen down the pecking order in North London.

It also suggests that the Toffees have made an enquiry about the possibility of signing the player on loan.

Winks has made 178 appearances for Spurs since his debut in 2014.

The 25-year-old has played just an hour of Premier League football so far this term, with Oliver Skipp, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Tanguy Ndombele all preferred to him at present.

The midfielder, who graduated through the club’s academy and has played ten times for England, has therefore grown impatient at Spurs and will now look to leave in January.

A number of clubs were credited with interest in the player, including Roma, now managed by former Spurs boss Jose Mourinho.

However, CaughtOffside state that Roma’s interest is not entirely true, and that Everton remain the most likely destination for the player at present.

While Everton chased Donny van de Beek in the summer, a move for the frustrated Manchester United midfielder never materialised, and the Merseyside club have now turned their attention to Winks.
