Pete O’Rourke drops Harry Winks transfer request –


Pete O’Rourke has revealed that Harry Winks would make a great signing for Rangers as a potential heir to Steven Davis.

What are the news?

Pete O’Rourke was speaking to the Transfer Tavern regarding the Tottenham Hotspur player and why he would make a solid Ibrox signing, saying:

How many signings did Rangers make in the last summer window?




“He would be a great recruit. If they can get someone like Harry Winks, just a few years ago Harry Winks was in the England squad. And obviously that hasn’t worked out for him at Spurs under the last two managers, but he’s still a very talented player.

Unfortunately, Steven Davis won’t be around forever at Rangers, and Giovanni van Bronckhorst needs to come up with a contingency plan to eventually replace his presence in midfield.

Winks could be Davis’ ideal heir

Tottenham offered Rangers the chance to sign winks in June, as 90 Minutes reported, but many Premier League sides were also keen, such as Everton and Leicester. However, nothing has yet materialized for the £91,000-a-week star and there are less than three weeks until the transfer window.

Winks has experience at the top level, making 128 Premier League appearances while also being capped for England, and could be the perfect replacement for Davis, with this season looking to be his last at Ibrox.

Although Winks didn’t have the most productive season last term, making just 19 Premier League appearances, his attributes over his career showed there was clearly talent out there, but he could need to move away to develop further.

The Englishman has an 89.7 per cent pass completion rate during his senior career while averaging 0.4 jumps gained per game and compared to Davis, whose pass completion rate is 85 per cent , then he would be more than able to hold his own in the Gers midfield.

He has already been compared to Spanish greats Xavi and Andres Iniesta by his former head coach Mauricio Pochettino, who also dubbed him the ‘perfect’ midfielder, only confirming why Winks would be a ‘great signing’ for the giants. Scottish.

Would Winks make a good Rangers signing?





The Dutchman expects his team to be able to move the ball well in order to create chances and starve the opposition of the ball, Winks could certainly adapt well to this style. a permanent move might be a bit too much, but a loan with the option to secure the player at a discount could be a viable option as the dying embers of the transfer window approach.
