Everton sign former Southampton defender Cuco Martina on a three-year deal

Tottenham Hotspur have been continually linked with Barkley, ...

Tottenham remain the only Premier League side not to sign a single player in the summer transfer window so far.

The 23-year-old has now entered the final 12 months of his contract and is said to have rejected fresh terms of approximately £100,000-per-week ($130,000). So far Everton and Daniel Levy have been very far apart on their valuations of Barkley, with Levy believing that Everton's £50million valuation is unrealistic for a player in the past year of his contract. So if Tottenham really are waiting in the wings but are reluctant to pay what the player wants, it would be refreshing - and smart - to see Barkley make the right move for the good of his career rather than his bank balance.

However, The Independent reports that Spurs are preparing to step up their pursuit of the 22-cap England midfielder, with Everton ready to compromise on their asking price as they look to avoid losing him for nothing next summer. The attacking midfielder would fit the system for Spurs and give them extra ammunition going forward.

Ander Herrera: There is no offer from Barcelona
Recent reports in the British press suggests that Herrera will sign a new four-year, £41.6million Manchester United contract. Herrera is now all set for a huge pay rise on his current deal to ward off interest from Barcelona .

Everton have officially announced the free signing of former Southampton full-back Cuco Martina as the summer recruitment at Goodison Park continues.

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.

Barkley playing for Spurs is not only advantageous for the Lilywhites, but also for the Three Lions, the composition of which is already primarily made up of Tottenham's first team.

Koeman has reportedly lost patience with Barkley after one season at the helm, and is pursuing a deal for Swansea star Gylfi Sigurdsson.
