Ross Barkley now just 1/5 to leave Everton for Chelsea

Midfielder has been heavily backed

Coral have seen a huge gamble on Ross Barkley joining Chelsea.

It means the odds on the Everton man heading for Stamford Bridge have been slashed from 3/1 into 1/5.

John Hill of Coral said: “If this gamble is correct, it looks like Ross Barkley will finally get his move to Chelsea this month where he’ll be hoping a fresh start can help him break back into the England squad.”

Barkley was left out of the Everton squad earlier this season under Ronald Koeman.

But a hamstring injury has meant that the England international is still to register an appearance this season, despite Sam Allardyce succeeding Koeman in the Goodison Park hotseat.

It’s believed that any move for the 24-year-old would see Everton trouser up to £35m.
