Arsenal are reportedly set to compete with Tottenham Hotspur for the services of Everton contract rebel Ross Barkley this summer.

The England international is currently recuperating from a groin problem, but he is still expected to leave the Toffees before the end of the transfer window.

Spurs have been in the front seat to sign the 23-year-old in recent weeks, but according to The London Evening Standard, city rivals Arsenal are also keeping tabs on his developments.

Barkley has snubbed the chance to ink a fresh Toffees contract beyond 2018, and his suitors are likely to wait until the transfer deadline in order to land him on a bargain deal.

Apart from the north London duo, Manchester United have also been credited with an interest in Barkley with Jose Mourinho desperate to add a new midfielder to his ranks ahead of next season.

Barkley contributed five goals in 36 top-flight appearances for Everton as they finished seventh overall in the Premier League, thereby qualifying for Europe.
