West Ham shouldn’t be going anywhere near Chelsea midfielder Ross Barkley this summer.

Meanwhile, Goal have claimed that Blues boss Thomas Tuchel is willing to let the former Everton man leave Stamford Bridge this summer.
This has got the makings of a West Ham transfer all over it.
David Moyes is a big fan of the Chelsea ace and managed him during his time in charge at Everton.
Let’s hope that the Scot thinks twice about bringing him to the London Stadium, however.
West Ham need to avoid Ross Barkley at all costs
The Blues always seem to get top dollar for the players they sell.
In fact, it was recently reported that the west London outfit will demand as much as £30 million for Barkley (The Express & Star)!
The 27-year-old has suffered badly with injuries in recent years.Since the start of the 2017/18 campaign, Barkley has missed 322 days of action and 64 games through injury (Transfermarkt).
There are far better, more cost effective options out there for West Ham this summer.
Moyes needs to add mobile, energetic and dynamic players to his ranks at the London Stadium.
Barkley just doesn’t fit into that category of player.
And West Ham need to avoid a move to sign the Chelsea man at all costs this summer.
