Spurs to go back for Barkley

The Toffees' star has been strongly linked with a switch to Spurs this summer but so far it's thought the valuation of the player has been a stumbling bock.

However reports have suggested Tottenham are willing to stump up close to the £50m Everton are wanting for one of their prized assets, who has come into the final year of his deal at Goodison Park.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is thought to be a long-term admirer of 23-year-old and, with Barkley failing to agree fresh terms on Merseyside, the Argentine tactician could be set to get his man this summer.
