Hopefully the Everton links to him are true .

Everton can't afford tea bags never mind a player.

He's certainly an upgrade on Zaniolo, Chambers and Donk.. though they might not do the same things, its still a net positive for us in the middle of the park. Especially considering most of our squad is going to be asked to play another 50+ matches next season.

I think this is the best way to look at it.

Hopefully.

Failing that, if he is coming here hopefully he’ll decide to go and partake in a bit of Gloucester cheese rolling this weekend on the way to his medical.

If we get the same Barkley of last season that received all the plaudits then I see no issue with this potential signing…cheap, good player, knows the place and will add a valuable pair of legs to our midfield options with our busy schedule. The club would also know what he’s like behind the scenes so if there were any issues there then this simply wouldn’t be happening.

This could turn out to be an astute signing but understandably there are question marks and concerns based on his previous form with us.

I also think we need to be a bit careful with the level of plaudits Luton are getting . They were largely crap and were rightly relegated despite Everton and Forest having points deduction issues and also being shite. Barkley ran around a lot and had his moments. Overall though, hapless endeavour got Luton relegated .

Yes. It probably went just like that.

Monchi: "Unai, I can get Barkley to sign for us."

Emery: "Monchi, I think we need to be a bit careful with the level of plaudits Luton are getting. They were largely crap and were rightly relegated despite Everton and Forest having points deduction issues and also being shite. Barkley ran around a lot and had his moments. That said, yes, let's sign him, we will be demanding in our way always looking to improve our levels, contributing to the team."

We wouldn’t be signing “Luton” though…just one player that has previously played for them, Everton, Chelsea, and ourselves amongst others. No one is saying that this would be a marquee signing, but he could be a cheap upgrade on the likes of Dendonker and Zaniolo whilst not put any risk on our FFP issues.

The absolute clincher for me is that Tim will have to diversify his myopic focus on Diaby to criticise whatever Barkley does as well so that’s a winner.

Is that more or less likely than 1/5?

More likely.

Mind you, we were 1/25 to get Champions League football and look what happened there.
