Another day, another dollar, another Premier League star linked with China. China is, according to the Daily Mail, interested in bringing in a young English star to help try and move more eyeballs to their league. And apparently Ross Barkley is on the shortlist.
Barkley, who has his whole career ahead of him at 23, has been called out for his poor performances this season by boss Ronald Koeman. Koeman believes he has a lot of talent, but he’s just not consistent enough at times.
This has led to Koeman no longer utilizing the young England international as an automatic first-choice starter.
Which leads us to this. Everton, despite having a new owner are still relatively low on cash with other clubs. With Koeman’s patience running out, could we possibly see them take the money if a huge bid were to come in? Would Barkley leave England? This one seems a little more likely than some others we’ve heard about!
