Everton transfer shock: Liverpool one of six Premier League clubs in running for player

EVERTON midfielder Ross Barkley could have a number of options in the Premier League this summer, according to the bookies.

Barkley is about to enter the final year of his Everton contract and is yet to agree terms over an extension at Goodison Park.

Express Sport claims Toffees manager Ronald Koeman has issued the midfielder an ultimatum, telling him to sign a new contract or leave.

His contract situation has lead to speculation linking north London rivals Tottenham and Arsenal with a summer move for the England international.

And bookmakers Betfair have responded by pricing Spurs as 6/4 favourites to land Barkley, with the Gunners trailing in the market at 18/1.

Manchester City (10/1), Chelsea (20/1), Manchester United (25/1) and even Merseyside rivals Liverpool (40/1) are also in the running for Barkley’s signature.

Everton will reportedly demand £35million if they are to sell the 23-year-old, who has five goals and nine assists to his name this season.
