Standard Sport understands Spurs have made a tentative enquiry about the Everton midfielder, who has struggled to gain the confidence of manager Ronald Koeman — notwithstanding an improved performance in last night’s 2-1 win over Arsenal. Barkley, 23, is out of contract at the end of next season, after signing a four-year deal worth about £65,000 a week in 2014. In order to persuade Everton even to think about selling Barkley, it is thought clubs would have to offer a minimum £35million. It would also be difficult to put together a deal in January — when sides are reluctant to discuss deals for important players — but Tottenham are known to have looked at the situation closely. Yet it has not all been plain sailing for Barkley and Tottenham are exploring whether he could be tempted away from Merseyside. Although Mauricio Pochettino has plenty of players who can make up the trio behind Kane in a 4-2-3-1 system, he still believes Spurs need a man who can carry the ball at pace and beat opponents. During the summer, Tottenham added Moussa Sissoko — for a fee that could reach £30m — and Georges-Kevin Nkoudou to their attacking-midfield ranks. The first choice players for those positions are Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen, Heung-min Son and Erik Lamela.
