Ross Barkley now looks more likely than ever to be a Chelsea player by the end of the month, according to Ladbrokes.
The Everton midfielder has long been a target for the Blues and Tottenham, with the latter previously leading the way in the race for his signature.
But Chelsea have this morning seen their odds of landing Barkley slashed from 4/9 to 1/5 - shorter than they've ever been.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: "If Conte is looking for strength in depth, he could do a lot worse than adding Barkley to his ranks and it looks as though the Italian gaffer may have won the race for the England star."
