Harry Winks has impressed Barcelona with his performances for Tottenham against their great rivals Real Madrid in the Champions League.

Winks was one of Spurs’s best players in both matches, a 1-1 draw in the Bernabeu last month and the 3-1 victory at Wembley on Wednesday.

Barcelona sporting director Robert Fernandez was at the game in Madrid and it is understood his original intention was to assess Christian Eriksen, who is considered a possible midfield option for Barca next summer.

Yet Winks is thought to have caught Fernandez’s eye in that game and also made a positive impact on Barcelona observers at Wembley.
