Winks, who was once likened to Spain legends and Iniesta by Mauricio Pochettino, made just nine League starts for Spurs, with Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg haven taken his place, whilst featured just 15 times in the league throughout.

He was strongly linked with a exit, although ex-manager Jose Mourinho blocked the move with Tottenham still in three cups and fighting for Champions League qualification.

Winks saw more game-time following Mourinho’s departure, featuring in five of the six games under Ryan Mason, but with youngster Oliver Skipp expected to fight for a first-team place next season, his opportunities might well be limited once more.

To kick off this quiz on Seamus Coleman, what squad number does the right-back currently wear for the Toffees?

Having racked up more than 150 senior appearances, 41 of which have come in Europe, Winks isn’t likely to be short of buyers, and Bent exclusively told This is Futbol that he would fit the bill at Goodison Park:

“He’s an Everton type of player – young, quick, moves the ball quickly.

“He’s not in favour at Tottenham, so I think they could get him on a good deal, I don’t think his wages would blow the roof off.

“I think he would be in the first XI coming from Tottenham, going into a new stadium, , but Winks is a talented player, very skilful, so I think Everton regardless of the manager, if he were up for coming, they would take him.”
