Tottenham Hotspur could just abandon their pursuit of Ross Barkley of Everton as they are still giving it a thought if they would place a bid for the England midfielder.
Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino has seen the improvement of French midfielder Moussa Sissoko so they may not need the services of Barkley.
The Toffees playmaker has also announced that he would leave Everton this summer after he rejected their new contract offer. Ronald Koeman has also decided to sell the player as he thinks it would also be the best for Barkley to find a new challenge.
However, Everton’s valuation for Barkley is too high which resulted for Spurs to pull off the deal plus the player was still injured.
Barkley will be ready for transfer in January for £30 million and Spurs were supposed to be the favourite to land him. However, it looks like things are changing since Sissoko has greatly improved.
Although Sissoko did not have a great debut season after joining Everton and was thought to leave the club since there are other European clubs who are also interested in him. But as could be seen, the French midfielder decided to stay and fight for his place and it looks like that it is going to pay off as Pochettino has been impressed with his improvement.
