Everton midfielder Ross Barkley was the subject of a lot of transfer speculation over the summer, but an injury prevented the talented Englishman from securing any deal at, or away from, Goodison Park.
However, now the season is underway, speculation remains rife as to where Ross Barkley will be once the January window completes – and the Skybet make him odds on (8/15) to move away from Everton, with him an 11/8 shot to stay.
So assuming the bookies are right (and we know they always are!), where will he end up?
As during the summer, Tottenham Hotspur are favourites to land Barkley, but they face apparent stiff competition from their London rivals, Chelsea and Arsenal – both of whom have had luckless transfer activity over the summer, losing out on many targets.
It seems that the bookies favour Barkley to stay in the Premier League, with six of the main clubs listed all being English – only AC Milan seem to be interested from outside of the Premier League, with them being a 10/1 shot.
Barkley has seemingly burned all his bridges at Goodison Park and despite it being unclear when he is due to return from injury, all signs point to him leaving Merseyside and travelling to the capital….but what colours he will next line up in remains very much to be seen. There is no doubting Barkley’s quality once he is fit and has his game head on, and you can seen benefits to him playing in all three teams at the head of the market….Champions League football could hold the key here, and we still feel that Tottenham will land the player when all the dust has settled.
