Everton manager Ronald Koeman says he is not confident Ross Barkley will be at the club next season.
Koeman previously stated the England international had a week to decide on his future at Goodison Park, after the 23-year-old was reportedly linked with a move away from the club.
When asked at the news conference ahead of Everton’s final game of the season against Arsenal if he was confident of keeping hold of Barkley, Koeman said: “No, but I am not worried because I like to work with players who like to play.
“We will go on and we’re looking for players in that position. If he stays there will be more competition.
“If you offer the player a good contract, it means we want him to stay here.”
