    Lfc rumour
    Everton midfielder Ross Barkley changed his mind about moving to Chelsea despite undergoing a medical with the Premier League champions, according to Toffees’ majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri.

    Post sport understands Everton had accepted a £35m offer for the England international and were caught out by Barkley’s decision to opt against the move.

    The 23-year-old’s snub is the latest blow in a string of transfer window disappointments for the Blues - who have missed out on a number of summer targets.

    Their former striker Romelu Lukaku was heavily linked with a return to Stamford Bridge but instead chose to join rivals Manchester United .

    In recent days Chelsea had an offered accepted by Arsenal for midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain , who rejected the move in favour of a transfer to Liverpool.

    Antonio Conte had also been keen to recruit experienced striker Fernado Llorente from Swansea having worked with the 32-year-old at Juventus but the Spaniard now looks set for Tottenham .

    Barkley emerged as a late candidate for Conte’s side, who have added Antonio Rudiger, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Alvaro Morata in the window, having been told by Everton boss Ronald Koeman he could leave this summer.

    But Moshiri told Sky Sports News the player had a change of heart and will now return to Goodison Park to continue rehabilitation on a hamstring injury.
    “After the medical we heard from Paul Martin, Ross Barkley’s agent, that he changed his mind and wanted to reconsider his position during the January window, that is the latest,” he said.

    “He is currently injured so I think technically he will be with us because he is under contract for another year so it is a big surprise but that is football.”

    There could be two late arrivals at Chelsea with Leicester midfielder Danny Drinkwater and Davide Zappacosta of Torino reportedly close to signing.
