Everton midfielder Ross Barkley is expected to leave the club this summer after failing to agree on a new deal with the Toffees.
As per the report, the Hammers are willing to meet Barkley’s £140k-a-week wage demands.
Everton seem to have given up hope of agreeing on a new deal with the England international and are already looking to sign Gylfi Sigurdsson as his replacement. The Swansea star is expected to cost around £35m.
Tottenham are also interested in Ross Barkley but they are worried about Everton’s £50m valuation of the player and his wage demands. The report claims that Barkley prefers a move to Spurs because he wants to link up with his close friend Dele Alli.
The Everton star wants to cement his place in the national team and a move to Spurs would certainly aid his cause. However, it remains to be seen whether Pochettino’s side can agree on a fee for the playmaker now.
Barkley has had a disappointing season under Koeman and has scored just six times in 38 appearances for Everton.
