Chelsea are keeping tabs on Everton superkid Ross Barkley.

The Daily Mail says Chelsea are using Saturday's clash against Everton to add to their growing dossier on England international Barkley.

A senior Stamford Bridge scout will be deployed to Goodison Park on Saturday night with the brief of solely watching the 19-year-old.

Barkley is viewed as one of the best emerging talents in English football, a fact that was underlined last week after Roy Hodgson handed him his England debut in the 4-0 win over Moldova.

Chelsea are committed to their plan of signing the planet's best young talent, and Barkley is a teenager firmly on their radar.
