Chelsea still chasing Everton star Ross Barkley despite interest from Spurs

by -

Everton star Ross Barkley seems to be out of Ronald Koeman’s plans for this season after rejecting a move to Chelsea last summer on Deadline Day.

The Blues and Tottenham Hotspur are both set to fight over the England international midfielder when the transfer window reopens in January, according to reports in the Daily Mirror.

The midfielder is said to be preferring a move to the Spurs, but Chelsea manager Antonio Conte will reportedly try to persuade the 23-year-old, whose price-tag could be decreased.
