Ross Barkley is about to join Chelsea

Ross Barkley will undergo a medical on Friday ahead of his £15 million transfer to Chelsea.

Barkley, an Everton academy graduate, has scored 27 goals in 179 appearances since making his debut for the club in August 2011.

The England global has now returned to training after a painstaking rehabilitation and Antonio Conte, the Chelsea head coach, wants to bolster his squad in January.

Barkley was close to joining Chelsea in the summer but pulled out at the last minute after deciding to first recover from his long-term injury and then decide upon his future.

Yet the 24-year-old, nearing a return to fitness, is now expected to complete a move to Chelsea who have not dropped their interest in him.

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

New boss Sam Allardyce has always been resigned to the playmaker's departure and Tottenham were expected to rival Chelsea for Barkley. Antonio Conte would be happy with his addition to the squad as he has repeatedly appealed to the board to make more signings despite signing a midfielder not being a priority.
