Chelsea fans predict swap deal as West Ham reportedly eye Ross Barkley

West Ham United are reportedly interested in raiding Chelsea to form a reunion between David Moyes and Ross Barkley at the London Stadium – and Chelsea supporters have predicted a swap deal.

Barkley, 26, has struggled at Chelsea this season – clocking up just four goals and four assists in 24 league and cup appearances. A 33-time England international, Barkley has a contract at Chelsea until the summer of 2023.

The Mirror have claimed that West Ham want to raid Chelsea for Barkley, after having a loan bid for the ex-Everton midfielder rejected in the January window. Spotrac claim he is earning in the region of £96,000 a week.

The Hammers need midfielders this summer. Tomas Soucek looks as though he will sign a permanent deal, but the Czech Republic ace should not be West Ham’s only midfield addition.

Jack Wilshere has returned to fitness, but West Ham need a player that can add goals from midfield. Meanwhile, Goal claim Chelsea want Declan Rice back at Stamford Bridge – after Rice left Chelsea for West Ham aged just 15.

Chelsea fans reacted to West Ham being reportedly interested in signing Barkley this summer – and many Blues fans have predicted a swap deal to take place, involving Barkley and a cash fee for Rice.
