Barkley has one more year left on his contract.

Though Everton will be keen to keep hold of Barkley, the chance to play in the Champions League and challenge for Premier League glory next season with Spurs may be appealing.
"I am delighted to be here - I have been here a long time now", The Mirror quote his as saying.

Asked if Barkley continuing to delay his decision is a concern, Koeman replied: "No, because I like to work with players who like to stay and we are already trying to get players in for next season in the front positions".
One player who is due to sign a new contract is Kevin Mirallas, after chairman Bill Kenwright broke the news at the club's end-of-season awards ceremony on Tuesday.
"I don't know it's up to the player and he needs to make a decision".
The club is working on a new contract for the England midfielder. "He knows what he needs to improve", said Koeman, who had no update on the striker's future.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is renowned for managing to get the best out of talented young players and the signing of Barkley would certainly tally with the club's philosophy.
