Toffees ace Ross Barkley is expected to complete his £15 million switch to Stamford Bridge today, according to BBC Sport.

A £15m deal for Barkley would see Chelsea hit the £200m mark on transfer expenditure, only the second club after Manchester City this year to have done so.

Ross Barkley is due to undergo a medical with Chelsea today ahead of a £15m move from Everton after Tottenham ended their pursuit of the midfielder.

The Telegraph and even the Metro further added that Chelsea is very confident of signing the Everton man.

Everton manager Sam Allardyce said on Thursday the club had been resigned to losing Barkley for some time.

With Antonio Conte frustrated with the Chelsea board, after not getting the targets he wanted including watching Tottenham steal Fernando Llorente on deadline day from under their noses, Romelu Lukaku chose to go to Manchester United instead.

The Tottenham boss was keen on the England worldwide last summer, but something has changed and the Argentine was not willing to sanction the move.

Barkley, 24, has not featured for Everton this season as he recovers from a long-term hamstring injury, but the Merseyside club began to plan for life without him last summer by signing Wayne Rooney, Gylfi Sigurdsson and Davy Klaassen.

This had left speculation surrounding the north Londoners' interest in Barkley, with the possibility of themselves and the current Premier League champions going up against one another in order to secure the attacker.
