Two fringe members of the first-team setup at Premier League outfit Tottenham Hotspur are in line to depart ahead of this week’s coming transfer deadline.
The first comes in the form of Harry Winks.
Having fallen ever further down the engine room pecking order on the Lilywhite half of north London owing to the respective arrivals of Rodrigo Bentancur and Yves Bissouma over the course of the last six months, it has long been common knowledge that midfielder Winks is viewed as surplus to requirements by boss Antonio Conte.
As a result, it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise to hear of the 26-year-old’s Spurs exit, late on Sunday, being all but confirmed.
Winks’ upcoming landing spot? Serie A outfit Sampdoria.
Speaking to the media a short time ago, Samp director Carlo Osti confirmed that Winks’ arrival is imminent.
The England international is primed to make the move to Genoa on loan for the season ahead, after a definitive agreement was struck between the respective boards at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, and the Marassi.
And another member of Antonio Conte’s ranks looks set to follow Winks out the exit door, too.
As per transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Atletico Madrid have found an agreement with both Tottenham and Sergio Reguilon, over a loan deal spanning the length of the 2022/23 campaign.
Left-back Reguilon is of course another to have slipped down the selection order in north London this summer, after Ivan Perisic’s free agent arrival from Inter Milan.
In turn, he is primed for an imminent return to La Liga, with Reguilon’s medical tests in the Spanish capital pencilled in for Monday.
Atletico have not secured an option to buy as part of the transfer, it is understood.
