Preliminary talks already underway: How Conte made a complete U-turn on Harry Winks

    With the arrival of Antonio Conte, the future of Harry Winks has become questionable. Despite a good start, the player failed to get firm foot in the starting lineup and even lost a foothold in the rotation.

    Winks has been linked with many representatives of the English Premier League in recent weeks. Everton and Crystal Palace are now the main contenders for the 26-year-old’s services.

    According to reports from the Daily Mail, the club that is most interested in the player is Everton. Negotiations have already been held, but no agreement has been reached.

    However, the transfer of the player contradicts what Antonio Conte said at the beginning of the year.

    “Winks has showed to be a reliable player. And for this reason, Winksy will stay here. I find players that are reliable, and that I can count on them, and Winksy showed me that I can count on him.”

    Another factor in Everton’s favor for a player is priority in playing time. Frank Lampard’s team is looking for a midfielder after Fabian Delph’s contract expired and Donnie van de Beek returned to his club after a loan spell.

    The midfielder’s transfer to Everton will give him the opportunity to start his career “again”, giving that his peak years are yet to come.
