Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger could use the bulk of his transfer budget this summer on trying to sign Ross Barkley from Everton.
Arsenal’s manager rarely, if ever, speaks about other teams’ players so the fact he is discussing the Everton midfielder, 20, speaks volumes about the belief he has in Barkley’s potential.
Wenger has seen youngsters come and go over the 18 years he has been in England as Gunners boss, but he says there are no concerns over Barkley and his future.
And according to the SportsDirectNews website, Wenger is known for attracting some of the best up-and-coming talent from around the world after earning a reputation for developing players and giving them a chance at a young age, and Barkley may well feel that a move to the Emirates Stadium could be a good next step in his career.
With great technique and intelligence, Barkley would no doubt fit in well into Arsenal’s style of play.
