Chelsea fans are hoping that Newcastle United do sign Ross Barkley from them this summer.

The Telegraph claim that Newcastle could make a move for Barkley in the summer, if their takeover deal goes through.

Newcastle are believed to be wanting to bring Rafael Benitez back, and the Spaniard has Barkley on his wishlist.

But Chelsea fans do not appear too concerned about the rumours that they could lose the England international.

If Barkley was to arrive at Newcastle he could bring creativity and a goalscoring threat to the Magpies’ midfield.

Newcastle lack a midfielder like Barkley, who enjoys operating in the final third and threading through teammates.

Barkley has struggled at Chelsea this term, with Frank Lampard only using him in a rotational role.

Barkley has made 20 appearances for the Blues across all competitions, scoring three times and claiming four assists.
