Everton set to agree £15m attacker deal, medical today - not Tosun

Ross Barkley- Everton to Chelsea

Everton manager Sam Allardyce said on Thursday the club had been resigned to losing Barkley for some time.

Chelsea are set to take their season's spending past the £200m mark after making a £15m bid for Everton midfielder Ross Barkley.

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 global, 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.

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 24-year-old hasn't played yet this season due to a serious hamstring injury but he's close to full fitness now and negotiations over a move away from Everton have resumed in recent days.

New manager Sam Allardyce said previous year that if he returned to full fitness and remained committed, he could still have a future at the club.

They would also argue that with Barkley out of the side this season, his absence has not hampered their performances - particularly since Allardyce took over from Koeman.

They will look to maximise the price of their homegrown talent, who joined the academy as an 11-year-old and has made more than 150 first-team appearances, but £15m seems to be a generous offer for a player they could lose for nothing in a few months.
