Tottenham Hotspur have so far failed to sign even a single key player in the summer transfer window and Pochettino needs to act swiftly now.
The likes of Arsenal, Chelsea, Man United, Liverpool and Man City have strengthened their respective squads. Spurs on the other hand have let go one of their top players, Kyle Walker.
The North Londoners have been interested in signing Everton star Ross Barkley for quite some time and the transfer could happen this summer.
According to Independent, Spurs have stepped up interest in signing the England international and the Toffees are ready to bring down their huge asking price of 50 million pounds.
The 23-year-old playmaker’s current deal with the Merseysiders will expire next year and it makes complete sense to sell him this summer.
In the last campaign, Ross was one of the top performers for Everton under the management of Dutch boss Ronald Koeman. In 36 league outings, the Three Lions star directly contributed in 14 goals (5 goals and 9 assists).
As per the provided Independent link, all the parties are willing to reach an agreement for the transfer to happen before the end of the window next month.
Barkley is a versatile talent, who can operate effectively in the midfield and in the attacking third as well. In your opinion, is he good enough to improve Tottenham?
