In a press conference, Koeman told reporters that Tottenham target Barkley is “looking for a new challenge” and the club “100%” expect the player to leave. This comes after months of speculation about the England internationals future. Koeman admitted that the 23 year old had turned down a new contract – with his contract expiring in less than a year:

We made a good offer of a contract, he declined… Ross told me at the end of the season he wanted another challenge.

Koeman was agitated by the attention of the media and went on:

His personal situation is really not so difficult. My priority is not Ross, with respect, it is his decision. I look more to other players. I knew this at the end of the season.

“Everyone knows what the situation is and that’s enough, I don’t talk any more about this.

With Barkley on the move and Everton prepared to see him leave, surely we will see some movement before the end of the window. Whether we can agree a fee with Everton or if another club comes in for the player remains to be seen.
