Harry Winks may be allowed to leave Tottenham Hotspur this summer if the Lilywhites manage to land the signature of Southampton star Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, according to The Daily Mirror.

The report added that the North London club is battling against the likes of Everton and Southampton in order to secure the signature of the 24-year-old. 

The Denmark international has been promising for the Saints since his arrival at the club in 2016.

He will be likely to be open to leave the club at this point in order to take his career to the next level and experience European football.

The prospect of working under Jose Mourinho could also be something which appeals to Hojbjerg who started his professional career with Bayern Munich.

Spurs will have to make big changes to their squad this summer. The club has struggled for consistency this season.

The midfield and defence in particular has been problematic for Mourinho’s side.

In lieu of the COVID-19 crisis, Mourinho will have to work with limited funds and some players will have to be moved on in order to raise funds for squad development.

The report added that the 24-year-old Winks is valued between £25-30 million. 

Winks started his professional career with the North London club in 2014 and has also gone on to earn six England caps, scoring one goal.

He has shown promise at times but has struggled to find regular consistency which could deem him worthy of being named as one of England’s best players.
