Roma general manager Tiago Pinto could arrive in London over the next few days for a series of transfer meetings with Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Harry Winks, one of the players on the club’s radar, according to a report from Corriere dello Sport.
Winks’ future is back under scrutiny after a tough start to the season. He has barely been in the Premier League for more than an hour during this period.
In fact, he has not played in the top class since the beginning of September. But of course, the arrival of Antonio Conte potentially opens the door for Winks to throw his Tottenham career a lifeline.
Should Conte have no plans for him, Winks might be hoping a former Spurs boss comes to his rescue.
It has previously been reported that Jose Mourinho wants the 25-year-old in the Italian capital.
And Corriere dello Sport has also now suggested that Giallorossi wants Winks. He is one of several names on their wish list, which also includes Dani Ceballos and Ruben Loftus-Cheek.
And interestingly enough, the report claims that Pinto could come to London within the next few days.
Although the report does not confirm whether he could face Tottenham or work on a potential move for the Winks, it is noted that he would arrive with the intention of working on some potential moves for the January window.
Flashing safely in the last chance saloon at Tottenham with the Conte appointment
It looks like Winks may need to move on. He’s not a young man anymore. And it is alarming that he has been with so little so far during this period.
When Conte replaces Nuno Espirito Santo, Winks may have one last chance. Conte has previously gotten an incredible tune out of players who had been written off.
But if he does not hit the ground running, a January bid could appeal to all parties.
And maybe Roma will soon know if they will be one side to offer him a way out.
