According to the London Evening Standard, Tottenham Hotspur did not move for Everton’s Ross Barkley as they feel better targets are available in the summer, and that must suggest that Daniel Levy has plans to spend big in six months’ time.

Barkley was thought to be a long-term Spurs target, but the England international ended up moving to Chelsea in a £15 million deal, without Mauricio Pochettino’s side providing any competition.
