  • Barkley joins the Blues

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.

The England global claimed he wanted a new challenge and there was reported interest in him from Tottenham Hotspur as well as the reigning Premier League champions.

Barkley fell out of favour under former Everton boss Ronald Koeman following his refusal to sign a new contract last season.

As stated by the Daily Mail, the fifth-placed side are said to be keeping tabs on the 24-year-old, who has struggled to find his way into Barca's starting XI with any regularity since the appointment of Ernesto Valverde at the Camp Nou.

Tottenham Hotspur have brought an end to their interest in Everton midfielder Ross Barkley and have begun to focus their attention on alternative targets for the January transfer window.

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. Barkley cited his own injury as the reason for the change of mind back then - he hasn't played all season in fact, after undergoing surgery in July - though it seemed like that he really wanted to join Spurs instead.

"I would expect there would be sometime in this window if there is going to be any interest from some of the big boys", he told Sky Sports when asked whether he was expecting bids for the player.
