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