David Moyes will surely be keen to bolster his attacking midfield ranks at the London Stadium this summer.

The Mirror that the Hammers could move to sign Ross Barkley at the end of the season, and Frank Lampard has allegedly given his blessing for the 26-year-old to leave Stamford Bridge.


Chelsea signed Barkley from Everton in January 2018 for £15 million (BBC). The 33-capped England international has gone on to rack up 10 goals and 11 assists in 77 games for the Blues (Transfermarkt).

This season, he has racked up five goals and four assists in 24 games for Chelsea. In 17 Premier League outings, the 26-year-old has registered four assists and averaged 2.1 shots, 1.3 key passes and 1.3 dribbles per game (Who Scored).

Some West Ham fans have reacted on Twitter to the news that Barkley could be a summer transfer target for Moyes.
