Gunners in for Barkley
Arsenal could join the race to sign Everton star Ross Barkley should he decide to leave Goodison Park at the end of the season.
The Gunners are keen to add to their squad in preparation for next season, after suffering a difficult campaign in 2016/17.
Ronald Koeman revealed Everton would sell their academy graduate at the end of the season, if he refuses to sign a new deal, and an agreement is no closer to being signed.
The situation has alerted Chelsea and Tottenham to his potential availability. But now, Arsenal are also thought to be interested.
Barkley would be available for a cut-price figure as his current deal expires at the end of next season, he’s only young at 22, so could be a worthwhile buy for one of the big clubs.
