Everton want £50m for Barkley
Everton have given up hope of keeping Ross Barkley with the Mirror reporting that contract talks have failed to progress.
The England midfielder has one year remaining on his contract and Ronald Koeman has given the player an ultimatum: sign a new contract or go.
Everton manager Ronald Koeman will attempt to add more creativity to his squad in the summer window.
Koeman's side struggled away from home this season, scoring just 20 goals in 19 matches and, after 25-goal Romelu Lukaku, their second-highest Premier League scorer was Ross Barkley with five.
The manager has warned midfielder Barkley, who could be sold in the coming months having stalled on an extension to his existing contract, that he is looking for similar players to perform his role.
