A product of Everton academy, Barkley was rated extremely highly as a youngster and made 179 appearances for the Toffees, scoring 27 goals.

A move to Chelsea followed in 2018 but Barkley has struggled to maintain a regular starting spot for the Blues.

Overall, he scored 12 times in 100 games for Chelsea.

Barkley hopes the move to Nice will give him regular playing time and consistent performances.
