Tottenham and England midfielder Harry Winks is shaping up to be one of the main January transfer targets for Newcastle United.

The 25-year-old was a summer target for Newcastle’s previous regime, but they struggled to switch players to make room in their 25-man Premier League squad.

He was hoping for a loan move to jump-start his career with Everton, Aston Villa and Brighton also among the clubs to show interest.

Winks is back in the fold thanks to new coach Antonio Conte and that could still change his perspective as January approaches, but there remains fierce competition for places in Tottenham’s midfield.

Newcastle lacks a creative and controlling influence in its engine room. Although Jonjo Shelvey will have a shot at Eddie Howe, the position is a priority for his recruiting plans, as well as for new defenders and a forward.

Scouts have been increasingly busy observing targets across Europe since the club’s acquisition took place, with Howe also taking part.

The new coach is keen to have players with Premier League experience who can start running when his team first faces a relegation fight before setting realistic ambitions for how they can spend their millions.

Juventus midfielder Weston McKennie is another player under consideration. The USA international has also been proposed to Tottenham and it is understood that Juventus could be open to an initial loan deal for the versatile 23-year-old.
