Tottenham determined to beat Chelsea to Everton midfielder Ross Barkley

Tottenham are determined to beat Chelsea to the signing of Everton midfielder Ross Barkley.

The Mirror says Spurs are ready to beat Chelsea to the signing of Barkley when the transfer window opens.

Goodison boss Sam Allardyce is resigned to losing the England midfielder, who has yet to play for him because of a severe hamstring injury.

But the 24-year-old is nearing full fitness again — just in time for a bidding war between the two London clubs.

Barkley was on the verge of a £25 million transfer to Chelsea just hours before the summer window closed, only to pull out at the last minute.
