Everton prepare new Barkley deal: Koeman set for major talks with Man City target Stones

Everton will also seek around £65m for Romelu Lukaku, who has been vocal in expressing his desire to move with a return to Chelsea uppermost in his thoughts.

Yet Barkley will be offered an extension to his current deal which has two years left to run on it.

The England midfielder signed a four-year deal in 2014 and although he finished the season low on confidence, Everton believe they remain the best place for his future development.

Koeman will be joined at Everton by brother Erwin, who was assistant head coach at Southampton, and fitness coach Jan Kluitenberg.
