Tottenham will reduce their price for Harry Winks in 2022 if the player continues to be on the sidelines of Nuno Espirito Santo.
This is the view of former White Hart Lane number one Paul Robinson speaking exclusively to Football initiate on the future of the 25-year-old in north London.
According to The Times (September 13), Spurs were open to offers in the order of Â£ 40million for the central midfielder in the summer window.
The price tag would have deterred potential suitors Everton and Aston Villa from making a deal.
Winks still has three years on his contract with Spurs.
Asked by Football initiate‘s Dylan Childs for his assessment of the news, Robinson said: âWinks needs a break.
âHe has to go to a club week after week. If Nuno doesn’t see him as a big part of his plans, he has to go and play regularly. Wherever it is.
“He’s a player that I rate very, very high. I think he goes into most other Premier League teams.
âWinks is never injured, he’s always available and is capable of producing seven, eight out of 10 performances every week when given a series of games.
âLet’s be honest, Â£ 40million is a lot for a player who doesn’t play. A player is only worth what another club is willing to pay. I think this price will drop considerably as there were obviously no buyers willing to this price in the summer. ”
