Should Everton cash in on this potential £35 million man?

Although most within the wider English footballing community consider Ross Barkley one of the most exciting young footballers to emerge from this country in recent years, the current Everton midfielder is arguably yet to set the Premier League alight as many initially expected upon his first introduction down at Goodison Park.

 

The 23-year-old Englishman successfully rescued a point for Ronald Koeman’s side last time out against Hull City of course – but as some Toffees fans have nonetheless expressed a slight feeling of discontent towards the up and coming Three Lions man this season – perhaps Ross Barkley could soon be on his way from Goodison Park, especially with Tottenham Hotspur reportedly in the hunt for his signature this January.

 

 

£35 million does seem like a rather generous figure, if the rumours surrounding the reported interest from Spurs can really be believed…

 

 

…for one reason or another, some Everton fans remain royally fed up with Barkley’s output in recent weeks…

 

 

There are those who nonetheless feel as if Barkley has been mistreated by the Goodison Park faithful…

 

 

…then again, perspective is an important thing in football…

 

 

With Everton’s Tom Davies currently breaking onto the scene down on Merseyside…

 

 

…perhaps time is running out for Barkley with all things considered…

 

 

But whilst the current England international has been slightly off colour for Everton this season…

 

 

…would his potential departure really represent a step in the right direction for Ronald Koeman’s side? Perhaps not…
