Chelsea have been linked with a move for Everton’s Ross Barkley as Chelsea seek to strengthen the central midfield position.

With Barkley in the final year of his contract with Everton, it is believed Chelsea are favourites for his signature.

However, Everton manager Ronald Koeman has today confirmed that there hasn’t been any bid for Barkley yet.

“I don’t have any update,” said Koeman. “There is no offer on the table for Ross, that means he will stay at Everton.

“The player has a one year contract and there is no offer. Maybe the club will not accept an offer because he is a good, young, English player. If somebody wants to buy Ross it’s a big deal.

“If there is no interest then he will stay and be part of the team. I respect every personal ambition of every player. He is still training with Everton, he is part of the team and training in a good way.”
