Ross Barkley to Spurs?

Ross Barkley figures prominently on a list of players being considered by Tottenham as they seek greater attacking support for Harry Kane.

Spurs have made a tentative enquiry about the Everton midfielder, who has struggled to gain the confidence of manager Ronald Koeman — notwithstanding an improved performance in Evertons 2-1 win over Arsenal.

Barkley, 23, is out of contract at the end of next season, after signing a four-year deal in 2014.

Barkley is one of the leading examples of the Everton youth system, having made his competitive debut in August 2011, aged 18. He has since made more than 100 appearances and was in the England squads for the 2014 World Cup and Euro 2016.

Yet it has not all been plain sailing for Barkley and Tottenham are exploring whether he could be tempted away from Merseyside.

Although Mauricio Pochettino has plenty of players who can make up the trio behind Kane in a 4-2-3-1 system, he still believes Spurs need a man who can carry the ball at pace and beat opponents.
