Barkley linked with Chelsea exit
Ross Barkley could be on the move before the transfer window closes next month withclaiming Leeds United are plotting a move for the Chelsea star.
Having so far failed to conclude a deal for Udinese playmaker Rodrigo De Paul, they claim the Everton playmaker has been identified as an alternative with a loan deal a possibility.
Chelsea could look to move the 26-year-old on in a bid to lower their wage bill after an extensive spending spree this summer.
Barkley, who enjoyed a brief loan spell at Leeds in the second half of 2012/13 while still with Everton, has failed to cement a starting role since making the move to Stamford Bridge and the signing of Kai Havertz has only seen him slip further down the pecking order.
Meanwhile, thesuggest Aston Villa are also interested in Barkley, while he could also be offered to West Ham as part of a deal for Declan Rice.
