Newcastle and Sunderland are also reported to be interested in the 23-year-old Rodwell. Jack Rodwell could be sent back to Everton as part of the deal
Barkley will have to consider his first team opportunities if he were to make a move, having played a part in all 38 Premier League matches as Everton finished fifth.
