Rooney wants Barkley to do the right thing

Wayne Rooney says that he wants Ross Barkley to be a part of a rejuvenated Everton's plans to crack the top four, amid ongoing links with the Goodison Park exit.

He was once mentioned as being the next big thing for the national team and a move to Spurs could help him reignite his stuttering England career.

Barkley is yet to sign a new deal at Goodison Park and has entered the past year of his current contract, meaning he could leave for free next summer.

Arsenal and Chelsea have also shown interest in homegrown Barkley and Everton expect offers to come later in the window though they do not intend to let him go cheaply.

"To come back here and try to help with that was flawless for me". Here are three reasons why.

"Obviously, I know the manager from my time at Southampton, so I know what he wants and he knows what I can do". Of those players, all but Walker earned their worldwide debuts while being coached by Pochettino. They do not pay Harry Kane that kind of money, they aren't going to give it to a player for whom there is no clear starting place.

Pochettino carries the air of a proud father with his players, taking every opportunity to praise them publicly for good performances and backing them on the occasions when they rarely overstep the mark. Even if Spurs get the price down to £30 million, that's still too much for a player who really isn't that great and would be available on a free transfer the following summer.

Everton boss Koeman said that Martina's versatility was a big factor in making a move for the former Feyenoord youth player. And he's the type of player Pochettino will be able to influence, mold and extract the best from.

Spurs are pursuing Barkley as well as a new right-back to replace Kyle Walker, who was sold to Manchester City for an initial £50m last week.

Dembele and Barkley compared in the Premier League last season.
