Everton’s Ross Barkley has been linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur in the summer transfer window.

Jamie Redknapp predicted on The Debate - Live show on the Sky Sports Premier League channel on Monday night (broadcast from 10pm, August 7, 2017) that Everton attacking midfielder Ross Barkley will join Tottenham Hotspur in the summer transfer window.

According to The Mirror, Tottenham are interested in signing Barkley from Premier League rivals Everton this summer.

It has been reported that the Toffees have dropped their asking price for the 23-year-old attacking midfielder to £35 million.

Arsenal and Chelsea are also interested in securing the services of the England international, according to The Mirror.

Ross Barkley of Everton celebrates scoring his sides first goal during the Premier League match between Everton and Watford at Goodison Park on May 12, 2017 in Liverpool, England.

Former Tottenham midfielder Redknapp believes that Barkley will join Mauricio Pochettino’s side this summer.

“I am convinced Ross Barkley will end up a Tottenham player,” said Redknapp on The Debate - Live show on the Sky Sports Premier League channel on Monday night (broadcast from 10pm, August 7, 2017). “I think that Tottenham are just playing hardball, they do that every year, and that frustrates me.”

Ross Barkley of Everton attempts to move forward with the ball during the Premier League match between Everton and Chelsea at Goodison Park on April 30, 2017 in Liverpool, England.

Barkley is a very good attacking midfielder and has a lot of potential, and the Englishman would certainly add to the depth of the current Tottenham squad.

The problem is that the 23-year-old could take a while to adapt to Spurs’ playing style, as he would not have had a pre-season with the North London club.
