West Ham United are said to be interested in signing Chelsea's Ross Barkley.

West Ham United fans are sceptical over whether a deal for Ross Barkley could happen.

The Daily Mirror claim that West Ham want to take Barkley from Chelsea on a season long-loan.

David Moyes is thought to be wanting to add a midfielder to his side’s ranks, as he seeks to add quality over the January transfer window.

 

Moyes has worked with Barkley before at Everton, and knows the England international well.

But most West Ham supporters are doubtful over whether a deal will ever take place with Chelsea for the playmaker, and some are frustrated that they appear to be looking to the loan market once again.

If Barkley was brought to West Ham he would at least see regular game time.

The 26-year-old has struggled to break into Chelsea’s side this term, although he did start in their last match against Burnley.

If Barkley was to sign for West Ham he could play alongside Declan Rice and Mark Noble in the Hammers' midfield.
