Ross Barkley

According to report, Antonio Conte is willing to shell out £15 million to cut a deal this month, and the deal could be complete as soon as Friday with suggestions that Barkley was in London.

The Everton midfielder came close to moving south in the summer transfer window but pulled out of a deal to focus on his recovery from injury.

Allardyce went on to say, "The club was resigned before I got here that they were going to lose Ross".

It appears Ross Barkley is about to join Chelsea.

Barkley played well for the Merseysiders last season under the management of Dutch boss Koeman.

South Carolina's unemployment rate 4 percent in November
Meanwhile, statewide unemployment also fell in November, to 4.6 percent from 4.9 percent a month earlier. The Colorado Department of Labor and Employment released the new figures on Friday.

Chelsea thought they had captured Barkley in the summer transfer window, only for the vaunted England global to have a last-minute change of heart and renege on a £35m move to west London. But that's not the case anymore, with Spurs apparently wanting to wait until the end of the season to sign him for free, while Chelsea ready to spend money now.

The Everton midfielder has always been a target for the Blues and Tottenham, with the latter previously leading the way in the race for his signature.

The 24-year-old rejected a move to Stamford Bridge in the closing stages of the summer window after the Premier League champions and Everton had agreed a fee.

Conte wants more players to strengthen what he considers a "small" squad - especially with Champions League, FA Cup, Carabao Cup and Premier League trophies still technically up for grabs.
