The midfield department of the Newcastle squad needs quality additions this winter.
The latest reports in England suggest that Newcastle United have joined the hunt for Tottenham midfielder Harry Winks.
The 25-year-old midfielder has played all his life at Tottenham. He has made his way through the youth system at the English club and made his senior debut in 2016. His contract is set to expire at the end of the 2023/24 campaign.
The midfielder has featured in 8 matches this term, providing one assist in all competitions.
He’s incredibly experienced for a 25-year-old and still has tons of room for growth.
Harry Winks has also left his mark at the international stage after netting one goal in 10 senior appearances for the England national team.
He is one of the more likely players to be offloaded by Tottenham this winter and the list of suitors in the England international continues to grow.
Eddie Howe wants to sign a new midfielder and Winks is one of the names at the top of his wishlist.
The England international is thought to perfectly fit the profile of midfielder Eddie Howe wants to target in the winter transfer window.
Newcastle are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.
The England international will offer the Newcastle boss the freedom to be more flexible with his formations, tactics and team selections.
According to the report, “Newcastle United are eyeing Tottenham midfielder Harry Winks. Despite a change of manager, Winks still appears on the outer at Spurs under Antonio Conte. The midfielder had also struggled for minutes playing for former managers Jose Mourinho and Nuno. The Mirror says despite his demotion, Winks still counts on plenty of admirers. Aston Villa and Everton are both keen, along with the new board at Newcastle, ahead of the January market.”

Newcastle have to fork out a huge transfer fee if they are genuinely interested in the England international.
The Spurs are preparing to sell their midfielder should they receive a massive offer for him.
Good signing for Newcastle United?

Newcastle fans would certainly love to see him arrive at the club.
If Howe sees him as the right man for his side, Newcastle should quickly make a move to fend off interest from other clubs.
