Blow ! Chelsea Beat Arsenal To Sign 23-year-old

Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.

Chelsea are now the frontrunners, ahead of the likes of Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United and Arsenal in the race to sign Everton midfielder with Nigeria Origin, Ross Barkley.

Liverpool Echo claim Spurs have long been seen as the most likely club to land the 23-year-old but they now face competition from across London, the Premier League reigning champions.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is searching the market for a new midfielder following the sales of Nemanja Matic to Manchester United.

Barkley has become one of the hottest property in the transfer market in England this summer because he is a homegrown player.

The 23-year old look ready tom move to Anfield but he might have changed his mind as they are reluctant to meet his wage demands.

Nothing is yet to come out of the supposed interest from North London outfit Arsenal and we cannot be sure if the interest is genuine or not.
