Barkley is eager to move out of Goodison Park at the start of the new year and it seems that the English International has already rejected a new deal with the Toffees. The new contract had a wage structure of over £100,000-per-week but Barkley has refused to agree to the terms in the hopes of playing for a new Premier League side in 2018.
Ross Barkley to Chelsea became a realistic possibility during the summer transfer window but the midfielder made a U-turn during the final hours as he wanted to give his career at Everton one more chance. But that choice has not worked at all for him as a result of which he is finally willing to shift loyalties.
Spurs also had an interest in Barkley during the summer but Pochettino gave the transfer a second thought because the player was still recovering from a hamstring injury. But now that the injury concern has faded, Spurs are once again set to revive their interest.
But Ross Barkley to Chelsea seems to be a more favourable transfer as the current Everton rebel prefers a move to Stamford Bridge rather than Spurs.
