In Focus: Tottenham Hotspur’s Winks should not entertain Barcelona just yet

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Harry Winks has caught the eye of Barcelona, according to the London Evening Standard.

What’s the story?

There is no denying that Winks has caused many football figures to stand up and take notice.

The 21-year-old put in stellar displays in both Champions League group games against Real Madrid.

The London Evening Standard reports that Barcelona sporting director Robert Fernandez attended Spurs’ 1-1 draw with Madrid at the Bernabeu, initially casting an eye over Christian Eriksen.

However, the Barcelona man, as well as some of his colleagues who was at the reverse fixture at Wembley, were reportedly impressed by Winks.

Should Tottenham fans be worried?

There are no indications that Barca are seriously considering a move for the Tottenham midfielder.

If anything were to transpire, it may not be the wisest decision for Winks to move to the Camp Nou at this stage of his career.

The youngster has had to be patient after making his first-team debut last season, but due to some injuries in midfield, Winks has proven to manager Mauricio Pochettino that he deserves to be in the squad.

So far in the 2017-18 campaign, the England international, who can play as a deep-lying midfielder, has made 12 appearances in all competitions.

Winks may be attracting some of the world’s biggest clubs, but under Pochettino’s guidance, there is no better place for the player to continue developing.

The manager has shown that he gives deserving young players a chance at the top level, and that is something that the midfielder may not receive if he moves to Spain.
