Everton are willing to offload playmaker Ross Barkley if their £30 million asking price is met, according to The Express.
The England international has been in inconsistent form over the last couple of months but reminded the world of his ability in the 2-1 Premier League win over Arsenal on Tuesday night.

Barkley has 18 months remaining on his current deal with the Goodison Park club and Ronald Koeman admitted this week that discussions over a potential extension could take place early next year.
However, the latest report suggests that Everton may well look to sell the homegrown star if a Premier League rivals is willing to cough up a cool £30 million for his signature.
This would give Koeman extra money to spend in the transfer market, with Manchester United pair Memphis Depay and Morgan Schneiderlin believed to be in the Dutch manager’s sights.
On his day Barkley is one of the most-gifted English players of a generation and he has put in some masterful performances for the Toffees over the years.
However, of late the creative star’s good days have seemingly been too few and far between, leading to speculation over his future.
