Ross Barkley wants to join Tottenham after hearing good things about Mauricio Pochettino, according to the London Evening Standard.
The 23-year-old was believed to be reluctant to move to London but has apparently been swayed after hearing a number of glowing reports about the Argentine manager.
The midfielder refused to sign a new contract with Everton at the end of last season and is expected to move on in the coming weeks.
Spurs are favourites to sign Barkley, but it seems the clubs are still some way from compromising on a fee. Arsenal and Manchester United are also rumoured to be keen.
Barkley has been ruled out of action for the next four weeks after undergoing groin surgery, so he will miss the start of the new season. I wouldn’t expect this one to be completed any time soon.
