⚽ Arsenal jump into scramble for Everton contract rebel Barkley ⚽



Arsenal have jumped into the battle for Everton midfielder Ross Barkley.


The Sunday Mirror says Toffees manager Ronald Koeman said last week that the 22-year-old would be sold if he does not sign a new contract.


He has stalled on signing a new one, and that has alerted the likes of Tottenham and champions-elect Chelsea to his possible availability.


Arsenal can now be added to that list.


They are short of a player of Barkley’s power in midfield, so he would be an ideal addition.


Barkley and Koeman have an uneasy relationship, with the Dutch manager feeling the player is capable of contributing more to the team.
