Everton manager Ronald Koeman announced days ago that Ross Barkley will not be a Toffee next season, not because he doesn’t want him at Goodison Park, but because the player himself feels it’s time to move on.
Tottenham and Chelsea are two clubs that have been linked with the England international, and Danny Rose keeps his fingers crossed that his England teammate will move to his side of London.
Hearing Ross might be available, well, I have played with and against Ross and bringing him through the door, in itself, would be a huge boost
the 27-year-old left-back told The Sun, going on to praise the – still – Everton midfielder.
I’m a huge fan. In terms of physical stature, right and left foot and trying to get him off the ball – he’s like Mousa Dembele
Rose said. As for why should Barkley choose Tottenham over any other big club, Mauricio Pochettino’s presence at the club should be a motive, according to the Spurs’ left-back.
If Ross wants to push on to the next level, Mauricio Pochettino is the best manager to do that – just look how many players he has got into the England squad
were Rose’s words.
