With the Everton fans in the Transfer Tavern absolutely delighted as to how their summer has panned out thus far, many of them aren’t even thinking about a certain Ross Barkley.
The England international has strongly been linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur, after snubbing a new deal at Goodison Park. Indeed, following the Toffees’ own recent overhaul, many of our punters are wondering if he’d even get into Ronald Koeman’s team these days!
So, the recent news that he’d been left out of the club’s pre-season tour to Holland obviously added fuel to the fire. While he is said to struggling with a groin injury, fans online have taken to Twitter to speculate about the 23-year-old’s future on Merseyside.
Having already bid farewell to Romelu Lukaku, the Toffees in the Tavern aren’t overly bothered about whether Barkley sticks around or not, it seems.
With that in mind, here’s a look at how Twitter reacted to Barkley’s omission.
@RBarkley20 what you playing at lad? Give your head a wobble.

Barkley has an offer that the manager thinks he's worth. If he disagrees then he can leave.. what's the issue? Koeman is in charge. #EFC

Eternal optimist that I am (cough) is there any chance that Ross Barkley is simply injured and that's why he's not with #EFC squad?
