Tottenham are delaying a move for Ross Barkley in the hope that Everton reduce their £50 million asking price for the player, according to The Telegraph.

Barkley is expected to leave Everton this summer after failing to sign a new contract put on the table for him by the Merseysiders.

The midfielder has just 12 months left on his current deal and is situation is reportedly being monitored by Spurs, Arsenal and Manchester United.

Barkley emerged as Spurs’ number one summer target last month, but they have been put off by his £50 million price tag.

In a report detailing Tottenham’s interest in Portuguese defender Ricardo Pereira, The Telegraph has given a short update on the Barkley situation.

Journalist Matt Law writes: “Everton’s £50m valuation of Barkley is a big hurdle, but Tottenham hope the asking price might drop the longer the transfer window is open.”

So if Spurs do move for Barkley, it looks like it will be much later in the transfer window. Sometimes that tactic leads to disaster, but often it means the player’s price will go down. We’ll have to wait and see.



  1. Comment: if Tottenham are going to spend 50 million for Barkley. then we Tottenham fans don’t want Barkley..

    instead of spending 50 million on a attacking players, try to buy 2 champions League players from monaco.

    25 million for sidibe and 25 million on lemar
    is better than buying Barkley for 50 million.

    getting a in-form right back and midfielder.

    is much better than out of form Barkley. now just try for a one year loan move for Barkley.

    because if we can make expire his contracts by making him play in Tottenham and making him form and buying in the summer for 10 million. to prevent there problem of selling him for free..convince Everton by telling him after one year loan move.

    so we will get 3 players.
