Arsenal will reportedly join the race to sign Ross Barkley, if the Everton midfielder is put on the market this summer.

Ronald Koeman said last week that if the 23-year-old does not sign a new deal at Everton then he will be put up for sale, with the manager and the midfielder already having an uneasy working relationship.

Barkley’s current deal at Goodison Park expires at the end of next season and with the midfielder stalling on a contract extension, it has inevitably alerted several Premier League sides, including Tottenham, Chelsea and Arsenal.

The Daily Mirror suggests Everton would allow him to leave knowing they can get £10million-plus for the homegrown player, but Koeman has said that the club will do everything they can to tie him down to a new long-term deal.

Barkley has started 25 Premier League games for the Toffees this season, contributing four goals and seven assists.
