HARRY WINKS’ Tottenham future is reportedly in doubt due to the club’s pursuit of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.
Spurs and Everton are both battling it out for the £25million-rated Southampton midfielder.
Harry Winks could be sold by Spurs this summer to help balance the books
And the Daily Mirror claim if Jose Mourinho wins the race for the Dane then Winks is the “most likely” player to leave to make way for him.
Owner Daniel Levy will be looking to balance the books if he gives his manager to green light to splash the cash.
The 24-year-old has been used sparingly by Mourinho since he took charge and is valued between £25m and £30m.
And Kyle Walker-Peters could also be on his way out of Spurs permanently.
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg is wanted by Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho
The full-back has spent the second half of the campaign on-loan at Southampton.
And he could well be used as part of a deal to take Hojbjerg to North London.
Winks rose through the youth ranks to first-team at Spurs under Mauricio Pochettino.
He has started the last two games, but he knows he is not an assured starter under Mourinho.

Hojbjerg, 24, had the captain’s armband stripped from him when after he told Saints boss Ralph Hassenhuttl he would not extend his contract.
The star has now entered the final 12 months of his deal, which means the South COast outfit will have to cash in this summer rather than lose him for nothing in a year.
The transfer window will re-open a week on Monday.
