Ross Barkley may have kicked his last ball for Everton after suffering a setback in his recovery from summer groin surgery.
The 23-year-old, who has been heavily linked with Tottenham in recent weeks, was said to be progressing well after going under the knife in July. However, news broke on Monday that Barkley suffered a suspected hamstring injury in training, and if scan results confirm a strain, then a return before the end of August is highly unlikely. With Mauricio Pochettino prepared to splash out around £25 million on the midfielder, his days at Goodison look to be numbered, although Ronald Koeman is not prepared to let Barkley go on the cheap: "If there is an offer, maybe the club will not accept. He is a really good player; a young player, an English player. With all the valuations we have seen the last few weeks, if you want to buy Ross it is a big [financial] deal." Reports earlier in the summer indicated Everton wanted closer to £50 million. Aug 14 - 5:45 PM
