Everton's Ross Barkley set to join Antonio Conte's Chelsea for £15 million

Chelsea are reportedly "close to clinching" a deal to sign Everton midfielder Ross Barkley after they submitted a new offer for the England global.

Barkley's exit will bring an end to his association with Everton, the club he joined as an 11-year-old and represented more than 150 times.

The Premier League champions lost out on the Everton midfielder on transfer deadline day last August despite agreeing a £35million fee with his club.

The January transfer window is now open so clubs are working hard trying to strengthen their squads for the second half of the season and put deals in place for the summer.

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

Allardyce went on to say, "The club was resigned before I got here that they were going to lose Ross".

The England global has less than six months left on his contract at Goodison Park and Tottenham was hoping to get him for free in the summer.

It remains to be seen if Chelsea's willingness to capture Barkley sparks Tottenham into life but Blues boss Conte is intent on strengthening his ranks, with a move for West Ham United forward Andy Carroll also under consideration.

The England midfielder, who have just six months left of his current Toffees deal though he's not featured for Everton all season, recently returned to training with the first team and has played in a behind closed doors friendly.
