The Everton fans in the Transfer Tavern are fearing a mass exodus at the club this summer…
Romelu Lukaku has been touted as a prime Chelsea target, whilst Ross Barkley has yet to sign a new deal at the club – leaving the Everton fans in the Transfer Tavern convinced that he could leave too.
The chances of that appear to be steadily increasing, too, with the Mirror reporting that both Man Utd and Tottenham are monitoring Barkley’s current situation – and are poised to make a move should they feel that it is the right decision this summer.
Barkley has, of course, been in fine form for much of the season – posing a real goal threat in an impressive Everton team.
Both clubs certainly would have a lot to gain by investing in Barkley. For Man Utd, he would represent another rare example of a homegrown, English talent within the first team of a top club – whilst his technical ability on the ball and relentless running would likely endear him to Jose Mourinho.
For Tottenham, young English talent has flourished at the club in recent years, and our landlord thinks that a duo of Dele Alli and Ross Barkley could be deadly next season.
Whilst no transfer deal appears to be impending, the Everton fans in the Transfer Tavern are convinced that Barkley will leave this summer.
Man Utd and Tottenham fans – thoughts?
