Manchester City could make a move for exciting Everton youngster Ross Barkley.
The 20-year-old attacking midfielder has been a revelation for Roberto Martinez’s side this season, putting in some eye-catching displays in the Toffees’ midfield and earning a call-up to the England squad.
Barkley’s performances look to have made him a strong candidate to make Roy Hodgson’s final squad for this summer’s World Cup, and he has attracted strong interest from top Premier League clubs as well.
Manchester United and Chelsea were linked with him earlier in the season, and it has now emerged that City may make him one of their top targets for the next transfer window as well.
Manager Manuel Pellegrini is keen to improve his options in the middle of the park, with there currently being little in the way of backup to key midfield pair Yaya Toure and Fernandinho, with a club source confirming that Barkley was among the Chilean’s top priorities. (SportsDirectNews)
