Ronald Koeman raises doubts over Ross Barkley's future at Everton

And it would appear that such high-jinks are commonplace in the Everton dressing room because we got another glimpse of what the players get up to behind closed doors courtesy of Romelu Lukaku's Instagram on Thursday.

Tottenham are rumoured to be one of the most interested clubs in signing Everton star Ross Barkley at the end of the current campaign. Either he accepts the contract or we sell the player.

Asked whether a conclusion to the deal was close, Koeman said: "Yes".

"If you take so much time [to sign], you have doubts [about staying]".

With manager Ronald Koeman's wanting to strengthen his defence in the upcoming transfer window, defender Jagielka said he still has more to offer after 10 years at the club. "The board is already working for a while to persuade him to stay, but its up to the player". Koeman has also stated that the club require a final decision from Barkley by the end of this season as they need clarification before starting their summer spending. Kenwright announced that Kevin Mirallas had agreed a new contract to stay at Goodison Park having had just over 12 months remaining on his deal.

Police on Monday announced the arrest of a 23-year-old suspect in connection to the Serial Street Shooter case in Arizona in 2016. Police previously said at least seven people were killed and two others wounded over a four-month period previous year .

The Dutchman has repeatedly criticised his player in public over the way he is developing, and earlier this season he was struggling to get into the first team.

Koeman disagrees with the Belgian striker but believes he can still improve his game.

"We know his big quality is in finishing - I can't make him better in that but I can make the player better in other aspects".

Barkley may have also registered eight assists this season (which shouldn't be sniffed at), but his goal tally is down, his shots on goal tally is down, as is his pass completion and overall attack score.
