Barkley was reportedly close to joining Chelsea during the summer transfer window but in the end the deal fell through.

Barkley fell out of favour under former Everton boss Ronald Koeman following his refusal to sign a new contract last season.

According to media reports in England, Spurs' strict pay structure now sees Harry Kane and captain Hugo Lloris as the club's top earners, with the pair now earning around £100,000-a-week but Barkley reportedly asked for more than that which would have made him the club's highest earner.

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.

"If this gamble is correct, it looks like Ross Barkley will finally get his move to Chelsea this month where he'll be hoping a fresh start can help him break back into the England squad", said Coral's John Hill.

New manager Sam Allardyce said past year that if he returned to full fitness and remained committed, he could still have a future at the club.

Chelsea are about to land Ross Barkley at the cut-rate price of €17 million.

"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".

It will mean the player is leaving Goodison Park after 13 years, having joined Everton as an 11-year-old in 2005.
