Chelsea are close to completing the £15m signing of Ross Barkley according to reports.The midfielder will have a medical at the club on Friday and will complete the move from his boyhood club Everton in the coming days.
The midfielder was close to moving to Stamford Bridge on transfer deadline day in the summer, but a move broke down in the final hours, with speculation at the time that he changed his mind during the medical.
Barkley reportedly turned down a mega money new offer from the Blues late last season, after former boss Ronald Koeman giving him an ultimatum of sign it, or be sold.
He had been heavily linked with move to Tottenham Hotspur throughout the summer, with Mauricio Pochettino thought to be a huge admirer of the England international, however it looks as though his future lies at Premier League Champions Chelsea, just days after Antonio Conte moaned about not getting the olayers he asked for.
He is yet to feature for the Toffees this season due to injury but he has recently returned to training.
