Chelsea and Arsenal set to take on Tottenham in battle to land exciting talent

Everton contract rebel Ross Barkley seems to not be lacking suitors as he eyes an exit from Goodison Park this summer.

The midfielder has been stalling on signing the new contract that has been offered to him since December and has been offered an ultimatum by his manager.

Ronald Koeman has lost patience in the England midfielder and has demanded that he signs the new deal being offered to him or risk being sold this summer.

Tottenham was thought to be the only team monitoring the player’s contract situation, but it has now emerged that both Chelsea and Arsenal have also registered an interest in the player.

Antonio Conte wants to increase the number of Englishmen in his team and sees Barkley as one of the brightest young English talents right now. The Blues can offer Barkley the Champions League football he desires and would make a bid in the coming weeks.

If Chelsea signs him, it would be a major setback for Tottenham who has been trying to sign him for the past two summers. © 2017 Frontier Theme
