Ross Barkley speaking to Chelsea fans

Chelsea renewed their approach to Everton after seeing a deadline day move for the 24-year-old collapse in the summer.

With both Tottenham and even Arsenal interested in the England playmaker, the Blues want a swift resolution to the transfer rather than spend the entire January window.

The Everton ace looks set to complete his switch to Chelsea, according to reports, with Tottenham Hotspur missing out.

The Telegraph and even the Metro further added that Chelsea is very confident of signing the Everton man.

Per Paul Joyce of The Times, the Everton midfielder - whose contract expires this summer - is on his way to Chelsea to undergo physical tests before putting pen to paper.

"I think the club was resigned before I got here that they were going to lose Ross".

It remains to be seen whether Pochettino has lined up another target, which could have changed his mind about signing Barkley. As soon as he's match-fit he'll undoubtedly be raring to go and eager to impress Antonio Conte.

The Tottenham boss was keen on the England global last summer, but something has changed and the Argentine was not willing to sanction the move.

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.
