Top Tottenham Target Is Desperate To Join Pochettino’s Team But Will Have To Take A Huge Pay cut

Published

on

Everton’s want-away midfielder Ross Barkley will take a big pay cut if he ends up join Tottenham Hotspur, as per the report from The Daily Mirror.

It has been made public that the Englishman is making a move away from the Goodison Park with manager Ronald Koeman confirming the news, saying,

 “Yes, 100 per cent. I knew this already from the end of last season. “We made a really good offer to him to sign a new contract, he declined that contract and told me that he is looking for a new challenge.” (Telegraph)

This has led to the rumours that Tottenham are looking at the possibility of landing him. The aforementioned source adds that not just the Lilywhites, but the player himself wants to work under Pochettino. But to do so, he will have to take a big pay cut. The 23-year-old midfielder is in the final year of his contract and the Toffees did offer him a new contract which included a bumper, more than, £100,000-a-week wage pack. However, Barkley has already made up his mind of leaving the club.

The Lilywhites, on their part, won’t be budging their salary policies. Having said that, Barkley would be earning significantly less than what Everton are offering him in the new contract. The likes of Harry Kane and Hugo Lloris are the highest paid players at Tottenham.

Furthermore, what is proving to be a big stumbling block is the fact that Everton are holding on to their £40million valuation of the player. Should Tottenham match the Toffees’ asking price, Barkley would become our most expensive signing, surpassing Moussa Sissoko’s £30million move from Newcastle United last summer. But with only a year remaining on his current Everton contract, we might well land him on a free transfer next season.

Tottenham are yet to breach the transfer market this summer as we haven’t made any signing. Only a Kyle Walker move to Manchester City has been sanctioned. Although Pochettino has admitted that the club are “little bit behind” in the transfer market, he has ensured that the officials are “working hard to sign some players who can help the team and bring some energy, and make them more competitive.”
