Chelsea Linked With Shock Move For Everton Star

Antonio Conte has talked up the abilities of Ross Barkley ahead of his imminent Chelsea move Antonio Conte has talked up the abilities of Ross Barkley ahead of his imminent Chelsea move

As a result of the injury, Barkley has not featured for the Toffees this season, so it could take him some time to get up to speed with his new side. He went on to make 179 appearances for his boyhood club across all competitions and scored 27 goals.

Barkley was on the verge of becoming a Chelsea player in the summer transfer window.

"I'm overwhelmed, I'm looking forward to it and I'm really excited to get started", Barkley told Chelsea's website.

"I think with Kante there, Fabregas and Barkley being the runner and joining in, scoring goals from midfield, they'll be a real threat and a good midfield three".

The England global joined the Blues for £15 million on a five-and-a-half year contract, after failing to make a switch in the summer due to hamstring injury.

The 22-capped England worldwide has not played a single game for the Toffees this season, and has always been prone to injury throughout his career, along with being an inconsistent performer for the Merseyside outfit.




Everton manager Sam Allardyce was also resigned to losing Barkley, saying that the midfielder was set to move to one of England's "big boys" which now appears to be Chelsea.

"Ross is a player we have long admired and are certain he will prove to be an important player for Chelsea".

He said: 'For sure we're talking about a young player, an English player. He's very strong physically, good technique.

'I think this is a good opportunity for the club to buy this player.

Conte urged caution over expectations for Barkley. He's a good prospect. I'm back in training, I'm doing everything as normal and I'm very close to being ready to play games.

"He had a bad injury, he had surgery and he hasn't played for seven months". We have to hope to recover him very quickly & have him for the rest of the season'.
