  • Everton Chelsea Ross Barkley

Everton manager Sam Allardyce admitted on Thursday that he was expecting to receive bids for Barkley before the close of the January window.

While personally I'm not all that enthused about Barkley as a player, the price, if Law is correct, could be as low as £15m, which is absolute peanuts in today's market, especially for a young, homegrown player who a few years ago was going to be the next greatest thing.

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 Toffees boss declared: "The club was resigned to losing Ross before I got here".

It remains to be seen whether Pochettino has lined up another target, which could have changed his mind about signing Barkley.

After turning down a possible move away from Goodison Park in August, Everton midfielder Ross Barkley is set for a move to Stamford Bridge with reports linking him to having a medical at Chelsea are making headlines.

However, with Barkley out of contract at the end of the current season, Chelsea could land a bargain and the BBC reports that a fee of £15 million is likely to be paid.

With Barkley's current contract set to expire at the end of this season, Everton look to have made a decision to cash in on him now rather than allow him to leave on a free transfer in the summer.

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.
