Everton dealt some rare bad news this summer ahead of Premier League campaign

There’s not been a lot to moan about for the Everton fans in the Transfer Tavern over the past few months, following Ronald Koeman’s extensive recruitment drive at Goodison Park. 

Though Romelu Lukaku left Merseyside in a huge £75m move to Manchester United, the players to have walked through the door at the club’s Finch Farm training base have excited the Toffees in the Tavern. Indeed, there’s so much optimism around our resident Evertonians that reports from the Daily Mail have barely caused any concern.

They’ve revealed midfielder Ross Barkley will miss the start of the Premier League campaign after he went under the knife to sort out a hernia problem. Much has been made about the England international’s future over the last few months as he enters the final year of his contract, with Tottenham Hotspur touted as a potential destination.

Following the arrivals of Wayne Rooney and Davy Klaassen, there’s a growing school of thought that Barkley won’t even get into the team. Still, perhaps this injury could impact on any potential move, with the star thought to be ruled out for the next four weeks.
