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.

Everton midfielder Ross Barkley is set to leave the club and complete a move to Chelsea, according to Sky Sports.

Barkley has only six months remaining on his contract, which means a reduced price could be agreed between the clubs after Chelsea offered double the amount in the summer. There is hope that Barkley will add versatility in the squad in central midfield, as a No.10 or as a wide player in the front 3, making him the flawless player to fit in Conte's 3-4-3 and 3-5-2 formations.

"I expect there would be some interest some time in this window if there's going to be any interest from one of the big boys".

The 24-year-old came extremely close to a move during the summer transfer window, with Chelsea the main horse in the race.

Tottenham Hotspur have also harboured a long-standing interest in Barkley, but sources have told ESPN FC that they are not prepared to rival Chelsea for his signature in January as they pursue other targets favoured by Mauricio Pochettino.

The Blues have reportedly re-opened talks over a move for Barkley, but Everton are yet to agree.

He will be eligible to play for Chelsea in both the Champions League and Premier League.
