  • Everton Chelsea Ross Barkley

Ross Barkley is set to join Chelsea for a deal in the region of £15m this weekend.

Barkley is all-but recovered from a serious hamstring injury that has forced him to watch the first few months of the season from the sidelines.

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.

The England global is believed to be in London to negotiate terms with the reigning Premier League champions, despite having turned them down last summer.

The 24-year-old England man rejected a new deal at Everton and is out of contract at the end of this season, opening the door to a cut-price move.

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.

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.

"I would expect there would be [an offer] sometime in this window if there's going to be interest from one of the big boys", the Everton boss told a news conference ahead of Friday's match away to local rivals Liverpool in the third round of the FA Cup.

With Gylfi Sigurdsson, Davy Klaassen and Nikola Vlasic already at the club, his departure may not leave the Everton manager scrambling to sign a replacement.
