Aston Villa fans react as Chelsea midfielder Ross Barkley is linked

The Blues ace could leave Stamford Bridge before the window closes.

Aston Villa are considering a loan move for Chelsea midfielder Ross Barkley before the transfer deadline – and their supporters have been reacting on Twitter.

The former Everton player has struggled to hold down a regular place in Frank Lampard’s team and The Telegraph now claim a move could be on the cards.

Barkey has been at Stamford Bridge since January 2018 when he signed for the Blues from Chelsea for £15 million (BBC).

The 26-year-old has played 88 games for the Blues scoring 11 goals and registering 11 assists in that time.

Regular first-team football might be ideal for the midfielder and Deam Smith is prepared to offer it to him for the 2020/21 campaign.

Villa won their first Premier League game 1-0 against Sheffield United but the Villans boss would dearly like to add to his squad ahead of the deadline.

Barkley earns £96,000-a-week at Chelsea and the Blues would welcome the chance to get some of that salary off the wage bill after a hectic summer of spending.

Following the latest news linking Villa with a move for Barkley, the club’s supporters have taken to Twitter to discuss the potential deal.

Here is a selection of Tweets from Villa fans with the 33-time England international linked with a move to the club.
