Harry Winks to Everton is 'all but done' - ExWHUemployee
Harry Winks to Everton is “all but done” for this summer and just waiting on an official announcement, according to ExWHUemployee.
The Toffees have been linked with a move for the Spurs midfielder as Frank Lampard looks to bolster his midfield following the club’s survival in the 2021/22 season.
While a deal is said to be on the table, with Spurs keen to sell and the player keen to move, the transfer insider known for his West Ham scoops told The Transfer Podcast [June 28] that a deal to see Winks move to Goodison was a “done deal.”
“Tottenham are trying to sign Richarlison from Everton and also trying to bring in Anthony Gordon from Everton as well,” he said.
“That’s an interesting move there from Spurs, trying to take two players from the same club. Obviously Winks from Tottenham to Everton is almost a done deal as well.
“In fact, I’m not even sure if it isn’t a done deal already. It might be one of those ones that it just hasn’t officially been announced yet but is pretty much all but done. I think Winks to Everton.. there is quite a good opportunity of that happening.”

Winks isn’t a superstar name or a game-changing signing, but he does bring plenty of qualities that the team has been missing and is of a good age.
He’s rarely injured, something that the team have struggled with especially in midfield, while his passing is crisp and he has a good engine on him too.
No fee is mentioned, but reports of around £20m have seen some unhappy but context must be taken too. He still has two years remaining on his contract and the two clubs are locked in talks for Richarlison currently too.
Regardless of the fee though, Winks is a good signing that helps to strengthen the squad. He’s got top level experience and has the qualities to be a regular in midfield alongside Abdoulaye Doucoure.
It’s a good start to the summer window to go along with incoming signing of James Tarkowski too and the Toffees can look to push on and away from another relegation battle this season.
