Ross Barkley could realistically join West Ham from Chelsea this summer report claims

A move to West Ham United in the summer could be a realistic option for Chelsea midfielder Ross Barkley according to a report from the Telegraph.

The 27-year-old is spending this season on loan with Aston Villa.

Barkley has racked up three goals and one assist in 20 Premier League games for Villa (Transfermarkt).

The former Everton ace has completely fallen out of contention for a place in the England squad for the Euros.


And he will be desperate to reinvigorate his career next season.

The Telegraph claims that if Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel overlooks Barkley in the summer, West Ham could be a realistic option for the midfielder.

The 33-capped England international joined Chelsea from Everton in January 2018, for a fee believed to be worth £15 million (BBC).

He hasn’t really kicked on at Stamford Bridge, however.

Perhaps a move to the London Stadium in the summer would help bring out the best in him. Barkley certainly seems to be a player who needs to be playing regularly.

The 27-year-old has incredible technique and boasts exceptional footwork in tight spaces.

Barkley can play in the number 10 role, on either flank as an inverted winger or in a more deep-lying role.

Depending upon how much Chelsea actually want for the 27-year-old, he could be a very useful addition for West Ham.

And the prospect of Barkley linking up with the likes of Jesse Lingard, Said Benrahma and Pablo Fornals at the London Stadium next season is an interesting one for the Hammers fans to ponder.
