Earlier this season the young midfielder looked as though he had the world at his feet whilst it also looked as though the ball was attached to them by a piece of string.
For sure, I thought as though he’d have a chance of going to the World Cup if he kept it up for the remainder of the campaign but now I’m just not so sure.
On form, he`s a more dynamic midfielder than much of what England has in the centre of the park and he`s certainly more forward thinking than many of the players potentially going to Russia in the summer.
However, he`s not been in form for a while and recent performances in the FA Cup have suggested he`s lost a fair bit of confidence from the start of the campaign.
Predictably, he’s going to draw comparisons with the other young British midfielders we’ve had come through in recent years.
Tom Carroll at Swansea and Ryan Mason both had potential but just fell short and I’m starting to think that Harry could go the same way.
Perhaps I’m being premature – all players go through patches of poor form – but it’s certainly easy to see why Winks could face the same fate as the aforementioned pair.
What doesn’t help his, and similar players’, cause is the fact we’ve got some of the best midfielders around.
Dembele, Wanyama and Dier all get in ahead of him whilst Moussa Sissoko has enjoyed plenty of game time throughout this campaign.
For me, Winks is a brighter talent than Mason and Carroll with all due respect but it looks as though he could do with a loan deal to a club where he`d be the main man.
I think he`d surely thrive in such a setting and so, with that in mind, Poch should be looking for a temporary deal for him this summer.
Agree? Let me know in the poll!
