Pochettino Wants This Everton Superstar: The Perfect Fiddle For His System At Tottenham Hotspur?

Tottenham had one of their best campaigns in the recent times, as they stamped their authority on top flight football with a finish in the second position in the recently concluded Premier League season. As a result, they will be playing in the Champions League and are in need to strengthen their side even more by bringing in some top class players in the summer.

One of the players who has been a top target for the Spurs for their next season is the influential midfielder, Ross Barkley. The Englishman is currently playing for Everton in an attacking role and is highly regarded as one of the best players in all over Europe in the current scenario.

Tottenham is looking to bring in the midfielder from Goodison Park in the summer to play a pivotal role in their team alongside compatriot Dele Alli. If the move goes through, the duo, along with Heung Min Son, Christian Eriksen and Harry Kane, the golden boot winner in the Premier League for two consecutive seasons, could establish the most formidable attack, not just in the Premier League but also in Europe.

The Merseyside club, on the other hand, has been in a tumultuous situation regarding the future of the mercurial midfielder, with the English international denying to pen down a new agreement. Reports suggest that Barkley is holding out on a significant wage rise on his current £65000 a week structure.

This has reportedly infuriated the manager Ronald Koeman who wants Barkley to either offer his allegiance to the club or leave it in the summer. However, the player has not yet given his say on whether he will be staying with the club or if he will look for any other option in the next season to continue his career.

Tottenham has reportedly been looking to make a bid of £35 million to bag the attacking midfielder this summer. The Englishman has been at the top of his form recently and has scored six goals for his club. He has also come up with eight assists and will look to continue his gallant run in the next season as well.

Reportedly, Manchester United are also looking to make a move for the Everton midfielder to rope him in for the next season. However, in the current situation, Tottenham look to be the strongest contenders to bag the Englishman in the summer and give him some European exposure.
