Everton manager Ronald Koeman threatens to freeze Ross Barkley out

"But, okay. I'm not anxious, because I like to work with players who like to stay".

The Dutch manager had also informed Barkley he had until the end of the season to make his choice, or he would be sold regardless, but with two days to go until Everton's final match of the campaign the England global is still to give his answer.

Koeman added he is not confident Barkley will sign a contract extension because of the time spent considering it.

Barkley has played 178 times for Everton, finding the back of the net 27 times, while he has also scored two goals for England in 22 caps.

"It's not about his decision, we will go on and we're looking for players in his position".

The simple truth is that Wenger can only now reinvigorate most Arsenal fans by competing seriously to lift either the Premier League or Champions League .

Barkley has just 12 months left to run on his current contract at Goodison Park, and Koeman stated that a decision would be made, one way or another, if he wasn't informed about Barkley's plans.

The 24-year-old was the Premier League's top scorer before Harry Kane overtook him with his four-goal haul against Leicester City on Thursday evening, and Koeman acknowledged that he needs to look at sharing the goalscoring mantle more evenly next season.

Speaking in his pre-match press briefing on Friday, before his side face Arsenal at the Emirates on Sunday, as quoted by the Liverpool Echo he said: "If you offer the player a good contract, it means we want him to stay here".

Well, speaking ahead of his side's final day Premier League visit to Arsenal, the Dutchman hinted that there was no update after he had given the England worldwide an ultimatum last week.

"We had several meetings and we know what we want". It's after the game on Monday and then we will know it. It's up to the board now to make the deals. We will see what the answer will be. "It will be hard but we will try to help", Koeman said. "I have a good record against Arsenal, let's hope we keep that".
