Everton fans inside the Transfer Tavern are concerned to hear they’re at risk of losing another vital asset this summer and it’s cemented their views that a managerial change is desperately needed.
Bleacher Report have revealed Everton’s board fear Ross Barkley could be prized away from Goodison Park this summer, if Roberto Martinez continues to wield the reigns on Merseyside.
Martinez is under intense pressure with the Premier League’s mid-table side, with speculation about his future intensifying after a last-gasp Anthony Martial goal dumped them out of the FA Cup at the quarter-final stage.
Barkley is a key asset to Everton and the club are desperate for him to stay, especially given the speculation concerning the future of star-striker Romelu Lukaku, so the news comes as a bitter blow for the supporters hoping to keep key players this summer.
The 22-year-old England international has been linked with Manchester United previously and the Red Devils could revive interest in the midfielder this summer.
