He included: “We don’t hold up till August – one weekend from now we require an answer.”
Barkley has scored four objectives and gave eight aids 34 Premier League appearances this season.
Koeman has utilized extreme love to get the best out of Barkley this season – from open feedback, evacuation at half-time at Sunderland, applaud for development however then back to dropping him at Swansea City a weekend ago. The most recent message was quite recently extreme – no adoration included.
Heartless and businesslike, the Everton manager conveyed the final proposal with the quality of a man who might not lose a solitary second of rest should he need to offer Barkley, making it clear he doubts his long haul duty as a result of his evident hesitance to sign another arrangement.
