Tottenham Hotspur have set their eyes on one of the biggest talents in England as they are reportedly planning to move for Everton star Ross Barkley in the summer.
According to Daily Mirror, Spurs have made Barkley their top transfer target of the summer and might make a move for the Englishman once the transfer window opens.
Pochettino landed Moussa Sissoko last summer and the Frenchman has not impressed and has not lived up to the expectations with which he arrived at White Hart Lane. This has seen Spurs get linked with Ross Barkley as the young star offers versatility and also quality.
Barkley has been a regular for Koeman’s Everton and has played for 2342 minutes this season so far. However, his best position has not yet been identified by the legendary Dutchman and hence this might be a good chance for Tottenham to try and sign the player.
Barkley has scored 5 goals and provided 7 assists this season and is a vital cog in the Everton set-up. With Tottenham having struggled in wide areas, Barkley might come in handy as he is capable of playing centrally and also wide. He is still only 23-years old and has a lot of football ahead of him.
The scope for development is high and joining a team like Spurs might be a good choice for the Evertonian as Tottenham are making huge progress on and off the pitch.
They’ve been challenging for the title second season running now and hence signing for the North London club would be a huge step forward. Everton will not be able to offer Champions League football and this might serve as a huge factor considering that the player is young and ambitious.
The project that is underway at Tottenham is sure to excite any football professional as they have a young core with huge potential and a new stadium set to open at the start of 2018/19 season. A lot of Spurs stars have committed their future to the club and this highlights what exactly is the atmosphere like at the club.
Barkley would be such an exciting prospect for Mauricio Pochettino and signing him would surely serve like a recoup of the transfer amount they payed for Moussa Sissoko as the 23-year old would offer a lot more than what he is currently offering Everton Football Club.
He would also be counted as a homegrown player, which further adds to the list of advantages that signing the player offers the club. It would surely be a wise move from Pochettino if he decides to launch a bid for Ross Barkley.
