Chelsea close to signing Everton's Barkley for £15m, according to reports

According to reports Chelsea are expected to strike a £15m deal with the Toffees for the England worldwide, whose contract at Goodison Park concludes at the end of this season.

The deal could be completed in the coming days, with the BBC claiming he will have a medical at Stamford Bridge today (Friday) ahead of a £15 million transfer.

Barkley has yet to play this season after having hamstring surgery following a training injury but is now approaching match fitness.

Per Paul Joyce of The Times, the Everton midfielder - whose contract expires this summer - is on his way to Chelsea to undergo physical tests before putting pen to paper.

Barkley turned down a move to Chelsea on transfer deadline day in August.




Spurs have been long time admirers of the Everton man, but it now looks like they will miss out on the enigmatic 24-year-old.

Barkley favoured a move to Chelsea last summer and regardless of Tottenham's stance, the midfielder's choice this month could also have been the Premier League champions.

Tottenham have been monitoring Barkley's situation but Sky Sports suggest the North Londoners have chose to end their interest with Mauricio Pochettino now looking at alternative targets.

"I would expect there would be sometime in this window if there is going to be any interest from some of the big boys", he said. Barkley joined Toffees back in 2005 when he was 11-year-old and made his first start for Everton in his side's 1-0 defeat to Queens Park Rangers.
