Danny Mills has claimed that Manchester City’s reported interest in Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Harry Winks makes a lot of sense.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former England international admitted that he was initially sceptical about the speculation, but has been increasingly won over by the prospect of a move.
The Sun have reported that Pep Guardiola’s men are lining up a £40 million bid to take the 24-year-old to the Etihad in the coming weeks.
And after some careful consideration, Mills believes that he would be an ideal fit for City.
Speaking to Football Insider, he said: “To start with I sort of opened my eyes a little bit. It left me wide-eyed. I thought ‘Really? Harry Winks to Man City?’.
“And then having thought it about it, actually Fernandinho is in the twilight of his career so City need someone.
