Ross Barkley could have his future settled in this January transfer window. The English international was a transfer hotshot in the summer but no side eventually succeeded in bringing him to their club.
Chelsea was one of the prime suitors of the player and he even had a medical with the Blues but for some reasons, he backed out from the move and the deal foiled at the last moment.
But Antonio Conte hasn’t given up hope and wants to revive his effort when the transfer window reopens in January. Barkley is currently sidelined with a hamstring injury but Conte is ready to make a big gamble on the player.
The player will be out of contract at the end of the season and there haven’t been any talks of renewal as per the contract is concerned in recent times. Barkley had been offered a new deal to stay beyond this season at Goodison Park but the player hasn’t made any commitment so far.
So this would be the best chance for the Toffees to cash in on the player as Chelsea are ready to invest in the player.
With World Cup coming very close, Barkley needs to play week in and out to have any chance of selection in Gareth Southgate’s England squad.
Conte has preferred a five-man midfield these days and Barkley possesses the same quality as that of Cesc Fabregas. The Spanish midfielder has been firing all cylinders but he needs a breather and Barkley can ease the burden off Fabregas.
Tottenham Hotspur have been one of the interested parties and might register their interest again. Mauricio Pochettino has given a slight indication earlier. ‘We are focused on trying to bring more English players through the academy.
“If we don’t have this profile we will try to take advantage of the English market and add more English players here.”
Barkley has been one of the renowned names at the Goodison Park in the last few seasons. The English midfielder might favour a move to Spurs but Chelsea are ready to hijack him under the nose of the North London club.
Sam Allardyce isn’t sure of the current condition and gave a hint that a deal might already be in place for the young midfielder. “I’d like to think we can keep Barkley unless somebody’s already done a deal for him.
“I am not daft enough to know in this game that those words and phone calls might not have already gone on.”
