According to the aforementioned source, the young central midfielder has caught the eye of the Catalan Giants.
So much so that Barcelona director Robert Fernandez has been observing Winks recently in order to see first-hand what he could offer to Barcelona.
Pochettino’s latest English protegé is certainly a name which Fernandez is considering for Barca’s future.
‘The Sun’ reported that Barcelona sent scouts to watch the 21-year-old during Tottenham’s victory over Real Madrid, and they were especially pleased with his ability to adapt when moving around the pitch.
It is also suggested that Spurs are well aware of the talent the youngster possesses, and aren’t worried about the interest emanating from Spain. They firmly believe that Winks sees his future at the North London club working alongside Pochettino.
However, that doesn’t mean that Barcelona will take their eyes off the youngster with huge potential.
