Tottenham are cooling their interest in Everton midfielder Ross Barkley.

As per the report, the 23-year-old is Mauricio Pochettino's top summer target, and given that he's in the last year of his contract with Everton, Tottenham value him at around £25m to £30m.

With the Wavertree-born lad entering his last season under contract with the Blues, Ronald Koeman was keen to not let him walk away for nothing at the end of the year and gave him an ultimatum that he would need to sign a new deal or else be sold this summer.

According to ESPN, Tottenham Hotspur have been put off making a move for Everton midfielder Ross Barkley this summer because his wage demands are too high, so what chance the England global having a rethink in order to push through a deal? So far Everton and Daniel Levy have been very far apart on their valuations of Barkley, with Levy believing that Everton's £50million valuation is unrealistic for a player in the a year ago of his contract.

Will Ross Barkley be on the Spurs USA bound plane?

Barkley is widely expected to leave Goodison and be replaced by Gylfi Sigurdsson.

Earlier this summer a move to West Ham was mooted, with the club set to double Barkley's wages to £140,000 a week, while Crystal Palace have also been linked. He really hasn't improved that much since breaking into the Everton first team in the 2013-14 season. Spurs are willing to pay between 25 and 30 million pounds.

On hearing about Rooney's transfer, Jordon went to the bookies where staff checked his handwriting and he provided proof of his identity, and they paid out. If Barkley becomes a Spurs player he deserves our support, but until then it's very fair to question this possible signing.
