Chelsea are in pole position to sign Jack Rodwell from Everton but want the starlet’s £20million price tag reduced.
Boss Andre Villas-Boas would like to take the midfielder in January but believes he’s over-valued and could wait until summer if Everton play hardball.
Manchester United are also long-term admirers of the 20-year-old but are unwilling to go beyond £10m.
Goodison boss David Moyes has refused to sell Rodwell on the cheap despite the club’s bankers being keen to reduce their debts.
