Manchester City are readying summer bid for Everton hotshot Ross Barkley, according to the Daily Express.
With Yaya Toure suffering a huge dip in form this season, the Citizens plan to sign the England international as a long-term replacement for the Ivorian.
Manchester City also need more home-based players if they are to comply with UEFA’s rules and everything suggests they will be making a move on Barkley at the end of the season.
Everton’s £50 million asking price could prove to be a problem, while Chelsea appear to be keen on the player’s signature as well.
Ross Barkley suffered a knee ligament injury just few days before the new season was about to start, but manager Roberto Martinez recently revealed the midfielder’s recovery was going better than initially predicted.
After losing the Premier League clash to Crystal Palace, the Toffees are 21/10 to defeat Swansea on the road in the Capital One Cup.
