Rumour Mill: Spurs Play Waiting Game For Barkley

According to SkySources, Everton attacking midfielder Ross Barkley is indeed a figure of interest at Tottenham, but the North-London club is willing to wait for a better offer.

It is understood that the Merseyside outfit hold the Englishman in high regard, having stamped a £50 million price-tag on young midfielder, who only scored 5 Premier League goals this season.

According to the report on SkySports, Spurs will retain their interest in Barkley up until the deadline on August 31st, in the hopes that either the fee will have dropped dramatically from £50 million by then, or a better alternative will have presented itself.

In the mean-time, it is rumoured Spurs will focus their transfer dealings on the Kyle Walker transfer saga, either bringing in a replacement, or securing the 27 year old’s future at the club.

However, a conflicting report from the Daily Mirror suggests that Spurs have cooled their interest in Barkley altogether and will definitely pursue other targets, despite Barkley having only 12 months left on his contract at Everton.

It seems that for any solid transfer news, we’re going to have to wait a little while longer yet. But how much would you pay for Ross Barkley, ideally? And also, what’s the maximum figure you’d pay?


Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. I think 25mil is a steady figure , as Everton get a decent amount for a player on a yr left , that isnt interested in playing for them . Yeah he would be worth more (on a longer contract) , but realistically its seems a fair figure all round ….

    • Overpriced at £25 Mill, Joanne, considering what’s left on his contract with THE TOFFEES. Great potential, but he’s got to start releasing it soon, otherwise the ball will continue to get stuck between his feet! Similar to Lampard, when he left West Ham, in the sense that not too many of there supporters were that concerned, but if Ross, leaves Everton, then I hope he can push on for his own sake, and become the player we hoped he’d become for Everton. Spurs, might suit, but he would deffo have to up his game, to stand a chance of succeeding, but I don’t think Levy, will want to pay anything over £20 Million though?

  2. I don’t think Levy would pay more than 15m for Barkley as we have strength in midfield with Alli, Eriksen, Dier Wanyama, Dembele. Would he even be a regular for Spurs. He was very promising in the past but so was Berahino and we know what happened there
