Everton-linked Winks

According to reports, Everton are interested in signing Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Harry Winks this summer with a loan move ‘most likely’.

Winks has spent his whole career at Tottenham Hotspur. He has played 203 times for them since November 2014.

The 26-year-old was a bit-part player for Spurs last term as he only started nine times in the Premier League.

Ten exciting rumours which are bound to turn into the most boring transfer sagas

It was revealed last week that Winks has been put up for sale for £20m. His contract expires in 2024.

The Telegraph are now reporting that Winks is ‘on the list’ of Everton’s targets. They are looking to sign four players this summer.

It is noted that ‘with finances tight’, a season-long loan for Winks is ‘most likely’.

Frank Lampard ‘wants at least one new midfielder’ this summer. Chelsea duo Conor Gallagher and Billy Gilmour are admired by the ex-Blues boss.

Gallagher ‘is high on Lampard’s list’, but he is expected to be given a chance to shine for Chelsea during pre-season.

Gilmour meanwhile is ‘well liked’ by Lampard even with him having a tough time in 2021/22 at Norwich City.

It is also stated that Everton are ‘expected to complete the signing of James Tarkowski on a free transfer’.

Elsewhere, Everton star Richarlison and Real Madrid’s Vinicius Jr were seemingly involved in a training ground bust-up while on duty for the Brazilian national team.

Pictures have emerged, via MailOnline, of the two players grappling on the pitch, with teammates Neymar and Lucas Pacqueta then rushing in to break up the supposed fight.

It is unclear whether or not it was a play fight but Richarlison was visibly frustrated as Neymar grabbed the back of his neck.

This is not the first time that the Everton forward has made headlines for a confrontation, with Richarlison having ordered Jamie Carragher to “wash [his] mouth” after the Liverpool legend criticised him for going to ground too easily. He has proved to be a combustible character, both on and off the pitch.

Vinicius, meanwhile, has been riding the wave of his winning goal in the Champions League final last weekend. The 21-year-old has attracted lots of hype since joining Real Madrid for €46 million as an 18-year-old, but this season he has finally found his feet and his back-post tap-in in Paris was the culmination of a fine campaign with the Spanish giants.
