Everton have held further talks with Tottenham over midfielder Harry Winks, but a deal has not progressed.

The Toffees would prefer a loan, while the 26-year-old has been discussed as an intermediary in a deal for the club’s talisman striker Richarlison. The Spurs are looking to finalize Winks’ departure as he has just two years left on his current contract.

Winks has reportedly been told to look for a new club this summer after falling down the pecking order under Antonio Conte.

Frank Lampard is looking for a midfielder this summer and is said to have given the green light to approve a transfer for Winks, having lost Fabian Delph at the end of his contract and Donny van de Beek returning to Old Trafford at the end of his loan.

Winks made 19 Premier League appearances for Tottenham last season, only nine of which started and his chances will be further limited after the arrival of Yves Bissouma.

With Rodrigo Bentancur, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Oliver Skipp and Bissouma all ahead of him, Winks, who is a youth Spurs fan and has made it through the club’s academy, will have more minutes to leave – something he alluded to last year has.

During Nuno Espirito Santo’s brief stint as Spurs boss, Winks admitted he wanted to play football even if he had to leave the club he grew up supporting to support him.

“Listen, I love Tottenham, I’ve always made that clear, but I want to play football. And I just want to play football,” he admitted last year.

“The only way to play your best football, gain momentum, is to play regularly. Listen, I give everything for the club, of course I do. They stayed with me, I stayed with them – and I want to play for Tottenham.

“But it’s hard when you have matches here and there, the confidence is low and you don’t get that series of matches. It is difficult.’

Crystal Palace, Southampton and LaLiga side Sevilla are also all said to be interested and the Spurs are reportedly listening to offers of around £20million.

The Eagles will be looking for a new midfielder this summer after star player Conor Gallagher returned to Chelsea at the end of his loan spell.

A move to Merseyside would see Winks reconnecting with his longtime Spurs colleague Dele Alli.

Lampard is said to have a long list of goals to help Everton avoid another relegation scandal.

The Toffees had a tough season last year and only ensured their survival in the Premier League in the penultimate game.

Everton have also inquired about Hull City winger Keane Lewis-Potter who has sparked interest from West Ham.
