Former QPR and England forward Rodney Marsh has suggested to both Tottenham and Chelsea that they wait until next summer for Everton attacker Ross Barkley, when his contract will have expired.

The London clubs have long been linked with moves for the 23-year-old attacker and it was reported that the Stamford Bridge club had even had a £35million fee agreed for him in the summer, but a deal broke down in the eleventh hour.

Now, the Times have claimed that both Spurs and the Blues will reignite their moves for Barkley in the winter window when he will be available at a reduced fee.

However, Marsh responded via his personal Twitter account on Saturday afternoon, that they should wait until summer when they’ll be able to get him for a “Big Mac” and a “strawberry milkshake.”

Barkley was once considered one of England’s greatest young talents after making his Everton debut back in 2011 in a clash against Everton.

However, it is fair to say he has not yet reached that potential, despite playing 179 times in total for the Toffees, scoring 27 goals and providing 28 assists.

Both Tottenham and Chelsea will be hoping they can help push his development forward as they look to challenge for the Premier League title.
