    Let's be right here, Ross Barkley, although probably not a position we need to fill, would be a quality signing.

    It's not a position we desperately need to fill but if there was a single shred of a chance of signing him, we should be all over it. However, I don't see it being likely.

    He would be a quality signing. I was always impressed when I watched him. Dont think we could match his wages but. That suggests yet another attempt at a loan signing with Chelsea paying half his wages or something. If its going to happen it'll be a loan

    He’d be brilliant but no chance we could afford his wages, he’ll go to another EPL team and pick up £100K+ per week.

    Can't see it happening as he'll get a gig at one of the lower end EPLs, maybe Fulham or something.

    If it happened he'd run amok up here though.

    Looking at the teams supposedly in for him, all of which could pay much more than we could.

    But, none of them can offer him a realistic shot at silverware, or CL football.

    He's 28 and his career has stalled. He's made a * of a lot if money already.

    You never know.

    Just thinking that myself. He signed a 5 year, £120k a week deal in 2018. That's £6.5m a year nearly and no doubt he has sponsors etc.

    If he can't make £32m last a lifetime, while coming up here and potentially earning another £10m in wages/bonuses, there's something far wrong. He's made his money. Come up here for free, get a £3m signing on bonus and £20k a week. It's not like he would be completely skint. Plus, he has the chance to play in the champions league for a set of fans who will love him and he gets the opportunity to win trophies. He's a decent age as well at 28. Still has a good few years in the game. Let's be honest as well, he could do * up here and end up in the championship on similar money as well. So, it's a no brainer for him really.

    For those who are in love.....
    100%..

    He's meant to be a proper * but if it was a goer and Ange could get him right. He'd be an excellent box to box type for us..

    Technically sound
    Quick
    Quite strong and 6 foot 2 so adds some height
    Skillful/good close control
    Can score and assist
    Played a high level for a long time now whether it be the EPL or for England

    Only 28 as well but don't think there's a chance it happens though..

    Permanent would surely be out of the question, unless Desmond is paying it.

    Pinch of salt.

    His attitude at Villa was absolutely horrific, really doesn't seem to fit the profile of person that Ange is looking for. I don't see it.
