Everton have rejected a £25m offer from Chelsea for their midfielder Ross Barkley.

The 23-year-old has turned down a new contract offer from Everton and is highly likely to leave the club before his contract expires next summer.

But Everton value him closer to £50m than £25m and have rejected Chelsea's opening offer.

The player is also a transfer target for Tottenham Hotspur.
