Chelsea on the brink of signing £35 million rated Premier League star

  • Conte has bemoaned his lack of options- despite several signings made last summer

According to report, Antonio Conte is willing to shell out £15 million to cut a deal this month, and the deal could be complete as soon as Friday with suggestions that Barkley was in London.

Speaking on Thursday, Everton manager Sam Allardyce admitted that his club were braced to receive further offers from "some of the big boys" for Barkley and conceded that his departure from Goodison Park is inevitable.

While the Evertonian has been out injured for first half of the season, he has resumed training and thus will be available to play in all four competitions for the Blues.

Sky Sports claim that Spurs are no longer in the race to sign the Everton midfielder as manager Mauricio Pochettino has turned his attention to other targets.

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 has rejected a new deal at Everton, who he joined as an 11-year-old in 2005, with his current contract due to expire at the end of this season.

That delay looks likely to cost Barkley's boyhood club £20m in transfer revenue although Everton risk losing the England worldwide for nothing in the summer and will reluctantly accept a cut-price move.

That's according to "The Times" journalist Paul Joyce, who has developed a reputation over the years for being one of the most reliable in the industry when it comes to news relating to the two Merseyside clubs.
