Atlético Madrid are considering making a summer bid for Tottenham midfielder Harry Winks.
The la Liga leaders made enquiries about the 25-year-old last summer, and are ready to reignite their interest in a player who remains on the fringes in North London under Jose Mourinho.
He is valued by the Tottenham hierarchy because he is an academy graduate and due to his home grown status, but his style of play does not fit the type of football preferred by his manager Jose Mourinho, and he has become marginalised, only starting a handful of games.
Those first-team absences have almost certainly cost him a place in Gareth Southgate’s squad for the Euros this summer.
Atlético are not the only Spanish club interested in acquiring his services, with Valencia also among his potential suitors.
A move to Madrid though might eb attractive as it would reunite him with former Spurs and England teammate Kieran Trippier.
