Chelsea new 6/5 favourites to sign Everton ace Barkley
Chelsea are through to the last four of the Carabao Cup, the knockout stages of the Champions League and on course for a top-four Premier League finish.
And the good news could be set to continue for Blues fans, with the club new favourites to sign Ross Barkley.
The West London club are now 6/5 favourites to sign the 24-year-old.
They’ve leapfrogged capital rivals Tottenham Hotspur in the betting, though Spurs remain firmly in contention for his signature at 6/4.
Barkley is yet to feature this season due to a hamstring injury, but the odds suggest that hasn’t quelled the interest of potential suitors.
He’s not the only potential signing Chelsea have an eye on right now. The Blues are 2/1 second-favourites to sign AS Monaco winger Thomas Lemar
Arsenal currently lead the race to snap up the French international, at 7/4. Meanwhile, Chelsea’s rise up the market has seen Liverpool pushed out to 3/1 for the 22-year-old’s signature.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “This could be a busy transfer window for Chelsea, with a couple of marquee names now shorter than ever to make the move to the Bridge.”
