Arsenal have entered the race to sign Everton midfielder of Nigerian descent Ross Barkley on deadline day, as per reports.
The Sun says the Gunners are chasing the England international who looks dead-set on a move away from Goodison Park before the close of the transfer window this night.
Barkley is wanted by a number of clubs in the Premier League after refusing a proposal from The Toffees to extend his contract.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is in the market for an attack-minded midfielder following the departure of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to Liverpool.
Ross Barkley,23, has been on the books of Everton for the past twelve years.
