Tottenham ready to make Barkley bid

Everton midfielder Ross Barkley has been a transfer target of Tottenham Hotspur for a long time, but reports today suggest that the North London club could be set to make a £15m bid for the England international when the January transfer window opens.

The talented 25-year old’s contract expires in the summer, meaning that he will leave the club for free unless a new contract is agreed upon or Everton decide to cash in on him in January.

Tottenham are hoping that the latter option is more appealing to the Toffees, who may well have to accept a cut-price offer for their renegade midfielder.

Barkley struggled to establish consistent game time or spells of form under Ronald Koeman, and the Dutch manager questioned the Englishman’s attitude and ambition. There is of course the possibility that he could reignite his Everton career under caretaker manager David Unsworth, or whoever takes charge in the long term, but much depends on whether the club are willing to take that risk.
