Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Harry Winks could be in line to face Liverpool in the Champions League final on Saturday, reports the Daily Mail.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is considering starting the youngster despite the fact he has featured since the end of April due to groin surgery.

Tottenham face Liverpool in Madrid on June 1 for the Champions League final and is the first time in 11 years that two English teams have met in the final of the competition.

Winks has become an integral part of Pochettino’s plans at Spurs this season and has made 40 appearances this season in all competitions.

The England international’s return to full fitness is a welcome boost for the north London side in their first-ever Champions League final.

Spurs face a Liverpool side that was narrowly beaten to the Premier League title by Manchester City and suffered defeat in the final of the same competition last year to Real Madrid.

Meanwhile, striker Harry Kane has declared himself fit for the clash with the Reds but manager Pochettino will make his decision on the day of the game once his staff have assessed the situation.

Kane missed the last six weeks of the season due to an ankle ligament injury but has travelled with the rest of the squad to Madrid.

The striker may have to make do with a place on the substitute bench with Lucas Moura spearheading the Spurs attack following his hat-trick heroics in the second-leg of the semi-final against Ajax at the beginning of May.

Should Tottenham beat Liverpool it will be Pochettino’s first trophy since becoming manager of the club in 2014.
