Barkley set for Chelsea medical

Barkley set for Chelsea medical

Chelsea is racing to rush through a deal for Everton star Ross Barkley so that they can ensure that Tottenham doesn't beat them there first.

Barkley dramatically changed his mind about joining the Premier League champions on transfer deadline day last summer after a fee in the region of £30m had been agreed with Everton, but the source said that the deal has been revived and is nearing completion.

With both Tottenham and even Arsenal interested in the England playmaker, the Blues want a swift resolution to the transfer rather than spend the entire January window.

Chelsea are closing in on a £15million deal for Everton midfielder Ross Barkley and could confirm the move before the weekend, according to reports.

The Telegraph and even the Metro further added that Chelsea is very confident of signing the Everton man.




Everton manager Sam Allardyce had confirmed on Thursday that Barkley's departure from Merseyside is just a matter of when, not if.

The Tottenham boss was keen on the England global last summer, but something has changed and the Argentine was not willing to sanction the move.

This had left speculation surrounding the north Londoners' interest in Barkley, with the possibility of themselves and the current Premier League champions going up against one another in order to secure the attacker.

Barkley is all-but recovered from a serious hamstring injury that has forced him to watch the first few months of the season from the sidelines.
