Everton are prepared to listen to offers for Ross Barkley after loosing hope of getting him to sign a new deal.
Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham are all keen on the England midfielder but a £50million asking price could be a turn off.
Barkley is demanding £100,000 a year to stay at the club, and The Mirror claims Goodison chiefs have given up on negotiating him down.
Chairman Bill Kenwright has been working for more than a year to try and keep the academy graduate at his hometown club.
But boss Ronald Koeman wants his squad to be 100 per cent committed to the cause as he builds for next season.
Tottenham in particular my baulk at the huge asking price, with United and Arsenal also bound to ask if the mercurial talent is worth it.
Despite Barkley, 23, having perhaps the best season of his career, there are lingering doubts over his consistency.
If no deal is struck, the Toffees face losing their talent for nothing next summer.
Swansea star Gylfi Sigurdsson could be a ready-made replacement but the Iceland playmaker will not come cheap.
