Koeman has emphasised the importance of getting his three remaining targets; Swansea City attacker Gylfi Sigurdsson, a centre forward and a left-sided defender.

The creative midfielder has been consistently linked with a big money move to Goodison Park this summer as the Toffees' new ownership continue their ambitious spending policy.

Young forward Dominic Calvert-Lewin's fine finish secured Everton's passage into the Europa League play-off round, in which they will face Croatian outfit Hajduk Split, but Koeman knows that he can not fully rely on the England Under-20 starlet and must fill the void left by Romelu Lukaku, who joined Manchester United in a deal worth £90m last month.

The Iceland worldwide has been a target for Everton all summer with the Swans having already knocked back a reported £40million bid.

The former Spurs player has scored 30 goals in all competitions for Swansea, while Barkley, the man he would likely be replacing, has scored 27 since 2010.
