Everton: Kevin Thelwell in ‘advanced talks’ to sign Ross Barkley

Everton: Kevin Thelwell in ‘advanced talks’ to sign Ross Barkley -Everton News

Everton journalist Chris Smith has revealed that Director of Football Kevin Thelwell is now in ‘advanced talks’ to sign Ross Barkley.

The Lowdown: Midfielder wanted

Given recent links to the likes of Guido Rodriguez and Idrissa Gueye, it is clear that Frank Lampard would like to bring in a new central midfielder before the transfer window closes – the middle of the park looked a little bare despite the impressive win on Friday evening.

Barkley was left out of Chelsea’s recent 28-man pre-season squad, and so he seems surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge.

The Latest: Barkley talks

Taking to Twitter, Smith has revealed that the Goodison Park outfit are now in ‘advanced talks’ to sign Barkley.

Expanding in his piece for 90min, the journalist adds that he is ‘keen’ to return to Merseyside, and only ‘small details’ need to be agreed before he potentially makes the move.

The Verdict: Get it done

Of course, some supporters would feel conflicted by Barkley’s potential return, given that his original move to Chelsea from the Toffees was in bad taste.

However, they must not forget the impact that he had as a youngster, when he was even dubbed the ‘next Wayne Rooney‘, high praise indeed given what the former Blue went on to achieve in the game with Manchester United.

Lampard has sung his praises before after managing him in West London, and so this could be a match made in heaven.
