Aston Villa ‘yet to be convinced’ Ross Barkley worth £35m Chelsea want for midfielder

Aston Villa ‘yet to be convinced’ Ross Barkley worth £35m Chelsea want for midfielder

An update on Ross Barkley’s Aston Villa future has been provided on Tuesday.

Barkley’s Aston Villa stint

Aston Villa, of course, signed Ross Barkley on loan from Chelsea back in September.

The midfielder had majorly struggled for any sort of regular football with the Blues, so a loan move did make a fair amount of sense.

And Barkley has since gone on to establish himself as a key cog in Villa’s midfield, as the club fight it out for a European place.

The 27-year-old has scored three and assisted one in 16 league outings this season, including the strike vs Liverpool showcased below:

Aston Villa unsure over Barkley deal

Barkley has also been forming a solid partnership with Jack Grealish.

So, Villa’s fans may have been hoping that Dean Smith and co. would move to their loanee’s deal a permanent one in the summer.

After all, Chelsea already have a huge squad that struggles to accommodate the players currently at the club, so it would make sense for players like Barkley and Ruben Loftus-Cheek, who is on loan at Fulham, to be moved on.

However, a report from Football Insider on Tuesday has cast doubt over the former’s potential departure. It is claimed that Villa are yet to be convinced that Barkley is worth the £35m which Chelsea are said to want for his signature this summer:
