Leeds monitoring Chelsea star ahead of January window

Leeds monitoring Chelsea star ahead of January window

Leeds United are showing an interest in Chelsea midfielder Ross Barkley ahead of the January transfer window, according to reports.

Barkley’s Chelsea stint

Ross Barkley would join Chelsea in January of 2019 from Everton.

At the time, Barkley was still a very promising talent who had impressed with the Toffees over the seasons prior.

However, since his move to Stamford Bridge, he has never really been able to hold down a regular starting spot.

This led to the midfielder being shipped out on loan to Aston Villa for the 2020/21 campaign.

Barkley featured 27 times for the Villans, scoring four and assisting one along the way.

However, he has since returned to Chelsea, and been used sporadically by Thomas Tuchel.

Barkley has made eight appearances across all competitions this term, but has notched just 238 minutes of action across those games.

Leeds eyeing Ross Barkley

In turn, with competition fierce in the attacking spots at Chelsea, added to the fact that both Billy Gilmour and Conor Gallagher will return to the club next year, there does not appear to be too much room for Barkley.

Couple this with the 27-year-old having just over 18 months to run on his current contract, and it would likely make sense for Chelsea to try to cash in on Barkley as soon as possible.

One club, meanwhile, who could well be interested in striking a deal for Barkley in January, are Leeds United.

As per the Daily Mail:

Leeds United are monitoring developments with Ross Barkley at Chelsea ahead of a possible January move.

The report adds that Leeds are not looking to spend much this winter, but could explore loan deals, with a midfielder among their targeted positions.

In turn, with Barkley tied to a short contract and a fringe performer at his current club, he would likely not set Leeds back too much in terms of a transfer fee.
