And Barkley, who scored six goals in 34 Premier League appearances last season, is hoping to play in Europe’s premier club competition and win silverware after penning a new long-term contract.
“I’m a young lad and obviously I’ve got a lot of things to accomplish and hopefully get better for Everton,” Barkley told Everton’s website.
“Last season went well – we got into Europe, which was our ambition.
“Obviously next season we need to push on and hopefully get into the Champions League and a bit of silverware as well.”
Barkley underlined Roberto Martinez’s influence on his career since the Spaniard took charge of the club last summer.
“He’s been a great manager and had a great start to his Everton career,” Barkley added. “He has helped me out a lot.
“He gives me freedom on the pitch and a chance to express myself – he’s been a great person for me.
“Being a local lad, playing for your local team and the team that you support is just a great feeling.”
