David Moyes wants to bring the 27-year-old to the London Stadium this summer according to various reports (Calcio Mercato and The Telegraph).

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.

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 27-year-old, who earns £87k-a-week (WT Foot) quite simply hasn’t lived up to expectations since joining Chelsea from Everton in January 2018 for around £15 million (BBC).

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)!

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.
