According to Goal (h/t Football.London), Chelsea midfielder Ross Barkley has received interest from three Premier League clubs ahead of the January transfer window. He has found himself at a standstill in the recent matches, having struggled to gain regular minutes at Stamford Bridge.

Leeds United, Newcastle United and Burnley are keen on getting the services of the 28-year-old. He could be on the way out of Stamford Bridge permanently in the winter transfer window. It remains to be seen whether a move would be facilitated in a time when the Blues have been handicapped by injuries and Covid-19.

The England international was left on the bench for the last three league fixtures, which could indicate Thomas Tuchel’s opinion about him. What makes it even damning is how he has failed to make a case for himself despite the team’s recent issues in regards to personnel.

End of the road?

There was a time when it seemed like the Blues midfielder was back on track, and he could have a role at Chelsea moving forward. He had a great run between mid-October and early November, but he could not build on those displays. The chances have long gone since he was left to rot on the bench over the past few months.

Saul Niguez, who is going through a tough period of his own, had found more success in terms of game time, which could indicate what the outcome would be in the days to come. Even academy players like Xavier Simons got the nod to cope with the lack of players adding to the Englishman’s plight.

It could be best for the 28-year-old to have a change of scenario if the situation continues moving forward. It would also be best for all the parties involved to look for moves elsewhere to meet their needs. The West London club could earn a decent sum as a loan fee or a transfer amount while getting him off the wage bill.

The Chelsea star could earn more minutes elsewhere where he could get more chances to showcase his quality. That would also provide him with ample opportunities to make his case to Gareth Southgate for making it into the national team squad for the 2022 Qatar World Cup.

Time will tell what lies in store for the England midfielder as we are close to entering the winter transfer window. Let’s hope that we can find a suitable outcome for all the parties involved in the days to come.
