Tottenham Consider January Bid For Out Of Favour Everton Attacker



Ross Barkley

Tottenham might find it tough to land the Premier League title this season but they certainly are linked with a number of players ahead of the winter transfer window. The London club have been tipped to sign Ross Barkley from Everton in the upcoming window and the Telegraph reports that a deal between Spurs and Everton will be struck for the right price.

Ronald Koeman, the Everton manager, is looking to sell the English midfielder as he considers the player extremely inconsistent. Koeman had even dropped Barkley after a few games in the season but the youngster did score a goal in the last game against Hull City.

Barkley was expected to take off this season after impressing under Roberto Martinez but this season has been a struggle. The 23-year-old has played 17 Premier League games and started 15 of them but has only scored a couple of goals.

Even regarding his assists, he only has two all season, in all competitions and has a couple of bookings as well. This certainly isn’t the best way to prove your ability to the new manager and this could be one reason why Koeman might want to sell him off.

Tottenham to bid big for the England international

Even though Barkley is having a poor season, signing him would cost Tottenham a decent amount of money. If the Lilywhites want to bring the attacker to the club, they might have to part with a hefty fee but there were rumours suggesting that Koeman is interested in a swap deal.

The Everton manager seems to be interested in signing Moussa Sissoko and a trade between the two sides certainly might work out for the best. There might be a few eyebrows raised as to why Tottenham would want to sell one of their more expensive players halfway through the season but Sissoko certainly has failed to impress anyone this season and maybe a switch for both players is the best option.

Pochettino is known for doing well with young players but he does need to have some quality in the side and Barkley, if he gets his head right, certainly can provide that. The problem could be the fact that Barkley is a little too inconsistent and has gone off the boil this season.

Would Pochettino be willing to take a risk with such a player? A few of his signings have not come off that entirely well and if Barkley fails too, a lot of questions will be asked about the Argentine manager.
