Chelsea enter bidding war for Jose Mourinho’s favorite midfielder, Wenger keen on deal
The Premier League have mostly ended the transfer window as the biggest spenders in the world, that trend may go on for a long time.
Chelsea have bade farewell to this season in the Premier League after clinching the title but rival clubs including Liverpool, Arsenal and Man City are yet struggling for a top four finish.
With the transfer market coming swiftly, the clubs have already lined up players that will reinforce their squad and the Toffees midfielder Ross Barkley may have steered a bidding war, as report according to the Metro claims, Chelsea have joined Arsenal and Man United for the signature of the player.
Barkley has been given an ultimatum by his manager Roenald Koeman on his future after the player, who is in the final 13 months of his contract, stalled over contract extension talks. The midfielder drew keen interest from Arsenal last summer but the Gunners are still weighing up a move for him, per the report.
With the departure of Wayne Rooney and Michael Carrick imminent, Jose Mourinho has reignited interest in the star as he submitted bids for him while in Chelsea. Mourinho has been a big fan of Barkley, who may been seeking a bigger challenge with a bigger club.
Meanwhile, Chelsea have been linked with plethora of midfielders as they search for an ideal partner for the PFA player of the season N’golo Kante in midfield. Barkley has huge potential and the Blues may make an offer for the Three Lions star.
