Everton midfielder Ross Barkley has reportedly gone through a chain of medical assessments with Chelsea forward of his proposed transfer to Stamford Bridge.
The 24-year-old got here at the cusp of becoming a member of the Blues previous to the summer season switch time limit after the Toffees agreed on a £35m sum with the Premier League holders.
However, the England global snubbed the membership’s advances as he sought after to totally get better from his hamstring damage ahead of making an allowance for a recent problem within the New Year.
The deal may be showed within the coming hours, and it will finish Barkley’s seven-year affiliation with the Toffees’ first-team, the place he has contributed 27 targets in 179 appearances.
Barkley’s arrival may well be probably the most many signings for the Blues this month with supervisor Antonio Conte having voiced his worry over the restricted choices within the first-team squad.
