Barkley called off a move to Chelsea last summer on deadline day and Tottenham were interested in signing the midfielder, but things have changed in north London.
Speaking on Thursday, Everton manager Sam Allardyce admitted that his club were braced to receive further offers from "some of the big boys" for Barkley and conceded that his departure from Goodison Park is inevitable.
The England worldwide came close to joining Chelsea in the summer transfer window after the clubs agreed a £35m fee, but ultimately opted against the move. The two clubs agreed a £35m fee and Barkley personal terms with the Premier League champions in August, only to request more time to consider the deal as he recovered from a serious hamstring injury.
He had been heavily linked with move to Tottenham Hotspur throughout the summer, with Mauricio Pochettino thought to be a huge admirer of the England worldwide, however it looks as though his future lies at Premier League Champions Chelsea, just days after Antonio Conte moaned about not getting the olayers he asked for.
