Chelsea 'on brink of signing Ross Barkley from Everton'

Barkley rejected the offer of a lucrative contract from his boyhood club a year ago and made it clear to the Goodison Park hierarchy that he was looking for pastures new, with many pinning his desire for wanting to leave down to his fractured relationship with former manager Ronald Koeman, who was relieved of his duties in October.

According to several reports, the Everton midfielder is having a medical with the Premier League champions ahead of a £15m move from Everton.

Chelsea have retained an interest in Ross Barkley who they came close to landing in the closing stages of the summer transfer window.

Barkley has not played a minute of Premier League football so far this season as he's been sidelined with a serious hamstring injury.

Few days back, we covered a report (via Mirror) claiming that Spurs are favorites to sign the Toffees star in the winter transfer window.

Barkley nearly joined the reigning Premier League champions last summer but decided against the transfer deadline day switch at the last minute.

However, he also suggested that it was likely a deal had already been agreed and it seems as if Barkley's time at Everton is over.

With Gylfi Sigurdsson, Davy Klaassen and Nikola Vlasic already at the club, his departure may not leave the Everton manager scrambling to sign a replacement.

Chelsea are going to pay £15m to secure the 24-year-old this month.
