Our punters here in the Football Transfer Tavern are eager to hear what the Daily Star has to say after our landlord informs us Ross Barkley is one of the hot topics being talked about.
The Everton midfielder has been linked with a host of top Premier League sides including Chelsea and Manchester City.
However, it seems that the Toffees are determined to hold onto their star man no matter who comes in and how much they have to turn down for him.
Liverpool and Manchester United have also been linked with the England international of late but Martinez issued a clear hands off warning, claiming: “I’m not going to just be worried about other teams’ interest because there will be interest, there’s no two ways about it.
“It’s a matter of making sure they keep progressing and keep developing. If I see they keep developing with us there is no need to worry.
“We are a club which does not have to sell. We have gone past that period and the football club is in a fantastic moment financially. Everything will be football decisions.”
So, there you have it ; Everton are no longer a selling club according to their manager! Do you believe them?
Everton fans. Will you be able to keep hold of Barkley even if all the top sides in the league come in with massive bids? Let us know your thoughts below.
