Tottenham fans are gutted and bewildered at the news that they’ve missed out on the transfer of Everton’s Ross Barkley.

It was announced earlier today that the Toffees midfielder had officially become a Chelsea player after completing a medical and agreeing personal terms with the Blues – a deal said to be worth £15million by BBC Football.

But while Spurs were heavily linked with the player, the north Londoners were seemingly unable to match the demands of the 24-year-old, and it left Chelsea as the front-runner for Barkley’s signature.

And Tottenham supporters were left questioning why the club did not push more for the England international, who was available at a snip of a price.

While some even went as far to say that all hopes of competing for star players were gone in light of the transfer news.

Here is a selection of the Tweets from disgruntled Tottenham fans:

Spurs have looked stale in the midfield zone lately and that was no more apparent than in Thursday night’s London derby at Wembley which ended 1-1.

Moussa Sissoko and Eric Dier appeared tired and short of ideas going forward, which led to calls for the French international to be dropped.

Barkley though would have been no immediate resolution to the midfield issues – the now former Everton man has been out of action all season and would have taken time to gain match fitness.

Spurs will have to turn their attentions elsewhere in order to address problems in the centre of the park.

In other Tottenham news, Kane already better than Alan Shearer says former manager.
