Deal Close - Chelsea to Agree $20million Signing

Deal Close - Chelsea to Agree $20million Signing

Barkley has not featured for Everton this season as he recovers from a torn hamstring.

Ross Barkley is due to undergo a medical with Chelsea today ahead of a £15m move from Everton after Tottenham ended their pursuit of the midfielder.

Chelsea, though, are prepared to pay to take Barkley immediately and Sam Allardyce on Thursday admitted that Everton remained resigned to losing him.

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.

Chelsea thought they had captured Barkley in the summer transfer window, only for the vaunted England worldwide to have a last-minute change of heart and renege on a £35m move to west London.

One tourist killed, 12 injured in hot-air balloon crash in Egypt
The hot air balloons also offer views of the Valley of the Kings, where pharaonic nobility were buried. According to Egyptian local news outlet Ahram Online , the dead tourist was a US citizen.

They are now trying to negotiate a lower price of around £20m because Barkley's contract expires at the end of this season and he will be able to walk away from the club for nothing on a Bosman free transfer.

Barkley, capped 22 times by England, has previously expressed a desire to play Champions League football and would be eligible to play for Chelsea in their last-16 clash against Barcelona in February if he completes a move to the club.

But Chelsea have this morning seen their odds of landing Barkley slashed from 4/9 to 1/5 - shorter than they've ever been.

Conte is seeking cover for Alvaro Morata and has never been convinced by current understudy Michy Batshuayi, and talks between the Premier League champions and Carroll's entourage are said to have already begun.
