Everton eye up unsettled Spurs duo Alli and Winks, while Khedira admits Ancelotti talks

Everton are reportedly eyeing moves for unsettled Tottenham duo Dele Alli and Harry Winks, whilst Juventus midfielder Sami Khedira has confirmed he has held talks with Carlo Ancelotti regarding a move to Merseyside.

Alli and Winks have fallen out-of-favour with Spurs this season with the former having been strongly linked with an exit from the north London side, having not started a Premier League fixture since the opening day of the season.

The 24-year-old’s fall from grace has seen him lose his place in the England squad and he is also understood to be on the radar of Paris Saint-Germain, as he seeks regular first-team football in a bid to regain his international place ahead of Euro 2021.

According to the Mirror, Everton are also admirers of Winks who is another player seeking first-team opportunities to keep alive his England ambitions, having fallen down the pecking order following the summer signing of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.

Winks has made just three starts in the Premier League this season and is believed to be open to the possibility of a loan move, with Everton set to enquire about short-term deals for either player next month.

Ancelotti is keen to strengthen his midfield and has also made contact with out-of-favour Juventus star Khedira, who has been deemed surplus to requirements at the Bianconeri and is seeking to depart on a free transfer in January.

The former Germany international played under Ancelotti at Real Madrid and revealed he has spoken to the Everton boss, raising the possibility of the 33-year-old heading to the Premier League.

“We spoke on the phone and wrote,” Khedira told Bild. “You know my situation.

“I’m open to a new sporting challenge. I have had a difficult time and want to play football again, fighting for three points week after week. That’s what I long for.

“At the moment I still have so much strength and energy, so I am not dealing with summer 2021, but with December and January. A change is realistic, my full focus is on that.”
