£25m Rated Englishman Is Tottenham’s Top Summer Target

According to Sky Sports, Everton’s Ross Barkley is Tottenham’s number one transfer target this summer. The midfielder is valued at £25million, with his contract at Goodison Park expiring next summer.

Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino wants to add more creativity to his side’s midfield, and Barkley could be chosen as a man to do that. The North London club want the England international to be their new No.10.

Barkley has been a long-term target of Spurs’, and now could be the time to make the move. With the player’s contract at Everton expiring next summer, the Merseyside club will offload him for the right price.

Everton have offered Barkley a new contract, but it seems unlikely that he will sign it. Manager Ronald Koeman, has been clear that if he doesn’t sign the contract, then he will be sold without hesitation (BBC Sport).

The midfielder had a mixed season last campaign. Koeman doesn’t seem to be his biggest fan. What’s more? The £23.6million signing, former Ajax playmaker, Davy Klaassen looks like a ready-made replacement for Barkley.

Some though, wonder if Barkley would even get into Spurs’ side. He hasn’t been playing at his best over the last year or so, and Tottenham have built a formidable line-up. He certainly wouldn’t walk straight into the side, nor be guaranteed a lot of game time.

Tottenham, who will be playing at Wembley Stadium next season, have not yet sold, or bought any players in this transfer window. Although, it is understood that they are working on several deals behind the scenes.

It was earlier reported that the club are looking at AC Milan midfielder Suso (Mirror). The Spaniard, who is a former Liverpool player, is weighing up his options this summer having been offered a new deal by the Italian giants. He also fits the mould of being a creative player.

One deal that could happen soon, is the sale of Kyle Walker. The right-back is expected to join Manchester City, and the Mirror has claimed that the Citizens have opened negotiations with the club over a move. Kieran Trippier has signed a new five-year deal at Spurs (The Sun), ensuring that Walker’s move can now go ahead.
