Danny Mills has suggested to Football Insider that Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Harry Winks would be a good signing for Manchester City in the summer transfer window.
According to a report in The Sun last week, City are interested in signing Winks from Premier League rivals Tottenham.
City manager Pep Guardiola is reportedly a fan of the England international and want the Citizens to make a bid for £40 million for the 24-year-old.
Former City right-back Mills has given his take on speculation on Winks being on the radar of the Citizens, who are rated at 9/2 by Betfair to sign Spurs striker Harry Kane in the summer transfer window.
Mills told Football Insider: “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.
“Harry Winks, he’s athletic, he’s good at keeping the ball. He’s almost a continuity player at times. He will do what Pep Guardiola tells him to do with no fuss. He will just sit there and keep passing the ball. If he has to sit on the bench, he will sit on the bench. So I sort of get it.
“Is he a Pep-type player? Well yes, he keeps the ball. I don’t think I’ve ever seen him have a five-star performance, but does he fit into Pep’s philosophy? Actually, he probably does.”
Good signing for Manchester City?
Winks is a very good midfielder who can hold his own in the middle of the park and has a very good passing range.
City manager Pep Guardiola is known for improving and developing players, and given that the England international is only 24 years of age, there is a very good scope of the 24-year-old getting better.
However, Tottenham may not be willing to sell Winks, as he is a home-grown player and an important player in the team.
