Barring any late problems, Barkley could be a Chelsea player by the end of the day, bringing an end to a 13-year stay on Merseyside that saw him make 179 first team appearances since making his debut in 2011.

As per reports, Barkley is only a medical away from joining the Premier League holders as Antonio Conte's is all in to cut a deal with Everton manager Sam Allardyce before the transfer window closes.

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.

The England global came close to joining Chelsea in the summer transfer window after the clubs agreed a £35m fee, but ultimately opted against the move.

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.

However, with Barkley out of contract at the end of the current season, Chelsea could land a bargain and the BBC reports that a fee of £15 million is likely to be paid.

Mauricio Pochettino is well renowned for deploying a high intensity pressing style of play, along with fiercely competitive training sessions, and it could be argued that Barkley would really struggle to fit into that way of working.
