According to reports from the Daily Mail Arsenal and Tottenham are set to go head to head for Everton star Ross Barkley.
The England international current contract expires next year and the report claims Arsenal are interested in bringing him to the Emirates Stadium this summer.
It is believed the chances of the Toffees selling Barkley is highly likely per the report, he won’t leave for cheap, the report claims he is currently valued around 50 million pounds ($64.8million).
The 23-yer-old attacker is a versatile talent, he can be deployed anywhere in the attacking third and he has been one of the key members of the Everton squad under the management of Ronald Koeman.
He has featured in 35 League games and have found the back of the net five times and provided 9 assists.
Arsene Wenger is believed to interested in signing an attacking midfield considering the doubt of Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil at the Emirate as they have stalled in signing a contract extension.
In my own opinion, I doubt if this deal will pull through as the Gunners have stars like Oxlade-Chamberlain, Iwobi, Walcott and even Ramsey who can operate in the attacking midfield and also consider the amount Everton are asking for his signature.
