Spurs are also owed £4.5 million from the sell on fee for Gylfi Sigurdsson, who Everton signed from Swansea, which will factor into the transaction.

The paper claim Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is convinced the offer is fair value.

Barkley is out for the next couple of months with a hamstring injury, which has affected Everton's plans to charge even more for the attacker.
