Chelsea 'on brink of signing Ross Barkley from Everton'

05 January 2018

After turning down a possible move away from Goodison Park in August, Everton midfielder Ross Barkley is set for a move to Stamford Bridge with reports linking him to having a medical at Chelsea are making headlines.

Barkley opted against leaving Everton while carrying a hamstring injury that has forced him to sit on the sidelines so far this season.

Telegraph Sport revealed last week that Chelsea had grown increasingly confident they could land Barkley this month, even though he turned them down at the end of the summer transfer window.

And now, barring late hitches, he is likely to secure a move to Chelsea.

The England global is believed to be in London to negotiate terms with the reigning Premier League champions, despite having turned them down last summer. There is hope that Barkley will add versatility in the squad in central midfield, as a No.10 or as a wide player in the front 3, making him the ideal player to fit in Conte's 3-4-3 and 3-5-2 formations.

New boss Sam Allardyce has always been resigned to the playmaker's departure and Tottenham were expected to rival Chelsea for Barkley. He said in his press conference, "I would expect there would be sometime in this window if there is going to be any interest from some of the big boys".

They will look to maximise the price of their homegrown talent, who joined the academy as an 11-year-old and has made more than 150 first-team appearances, but £15m seems to be a generous offer for a player they could lose for nothing in a few months.
