Tottenham makes U-turn in Ross Barkley deal

Everton are still holding out for a deal in the region of £50 million, a figure vindicated by Spurs selling Kyle Walker to Manchester City for £54m this week.

According to reports, Tottenham are set to step up their interest in signing Ross Barkley from Everton as the Toffees are now prepared to reach a compromise.

Everton are unlikely to come down on their asking price despite the fact Barkley is keen on a move to London.

Barkley has impressed for Everton with 21 goals and 21 assists in 150 league appearances for the club though, and so it remains to be seen whether or not a deal can be struck between the two parties as Everton look to continue their big spending this summer too.

Right-back Martina, who had been released by Southampton, joins fellow new recruits Jordan Pickford, Wayne Rooney, Davy Klaassen, Sandro Ramirez and Michael Keane at Goodison Park, while Henry Onyekuru also joined before being loaned to Anderlecht for the coming year.

The Communist Party Congress, which is held once every five years and chooses the country's top leadership, will be in mid-autumn. But in China, it was a slight slowdown: Credit was up 15.3 percent in May from a year earlier.

The 27-year-old is linking up again with Ronald Koeman after joining on a Bosman free transfer following the expiry of his contract at St Mary's. This is the epitome of transfer season, especially in the English Premier League where the coffers are overflowing for the major teams.

Not many managers would have been so lenient, particularly as Spurs were eliminated from the competition after Alli's sending off, but Pochettino managed the situation perfectly, recognising Alli as one of his best players who needed support.

Will Spurs sign Ross Barkley? Spurs are willing to pay between 25 and 30 million pounds.

While not as silky on the ball as Dembele (who completed 84% of his take ons last season) Barkley is also an excellent ball-carrier (66% take on success) and is comfortable when in possession.
