Tottenham midfielder Harry Winks is a target for Nottingham Forest, according to the Evening Standard.

The player is way down the pecking order under Antonio Conte and has been told he can leave this summer.

Winks made 30 appearances last season but a lot of those were cameo outings from the bench.

At 26-years-old he is keen to rediscover himself and head somewhere else to play regular first-team football.

Winks was wanted by Sampdoria but in a possible boost to Forest, he wants to stay in the Premier League.

The Reds have signed some midfielders this summer and this perhaps does seem an intriguing link.

Lewis O’Brien, Orel Mangala, Remo Freuler and Cheikhou Kouyate have all been added to the ranks this summer.

Furthermore, Ryan Yates, Jack Colback and Cafu are currently still on the books at the club too.

Winks would be a wonderful addition for someone this summer though and he’s a player with lots of ability.

When Jan Vertonghen was at Tottenham he called him ‘unbelievable’ and Jose Mourinho was also a huge fan.

Winks has played 203 times for Tottenham and he’s a proven Premier League performer.

This would perhaps be a strange deal and perhaps this is nothing more than mere speculation.

Winks wouldn’t come cheap to any club that holds a desire to sign him this month.

He is likely to command a sizeable transfer fee, whilst he earns £91,000-a-week at Tottenham.

Winks, it’s fair to say, would be a very good signing for a newly-promoted side to complete this summer.

The player is at a nice age, passes the ball well and also isn’t afraid to get stuck in.

This just feels like the right player at the wrong time for Forest as they look to finalise their business.

Forest now have a plethora of midfield options and it’s just hard to imagine where Winks would fit in.
