Frank Lampard provides fresh transfer update on Ross Barkley

Lampard clears the air on Barkley’s Chelsea future


Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has dismissed the prospect of Ross Barkley leaving the Blues amid the recent speculation linking him with a move to West Ham United.

The England international has barely played for the Blues in the past few months due to an ankle problem but he has recently starred for the club in the back-to-back games in all competitions.

Amidst this, there has been the speculation of him making the move to the Hammers but Lampard has rubbished the claim by stating that the midfielder’s future remains with the club.

“There’s no talk here of Ross Barkley going anywhere; he’s our player. He’s played the last couple of games and done very well. I’ve got a lot of faith in Ross. That was news I heard just like everyone else, but there’s absolutely no feeling towards that here. I’m very happy with him,” he told via Football.London.

The Blues are said to be eyeing a new midfielder and defender in the transfer window but they are presently not close to signing anyone to strengthen the first-team squad.

Real Madrid’s Isco and Lille’s Boubakary Soumare have been linked with possible moves but the Blues have yet to find the breakthrough for any of those players.

Barkley hails Mason Mount’s quality


England international Ross Barkley has said that Mason Mount has similar traits to Chelsea head coach Frank Lampard from his playing days with the club.

The 20-year-old has made his breakthrough with the Blues first-team in fine fashion this term and he has already contributed a couple of goals in the Premier League.

This has earned him with a call-up to the England national side and Barkey has hailed his compatriot by comparing his style of play to club legend and current boss Lampard.

“The way he arrives in the box and gets shots away early, it is similar to Lamps. He has a really good technique with how he finishes as well. He is a brilliant player,” he was quoted as saying by Sky Sports.

Both Barkley and Mount could be competing for one place in the starting lineup with the Three Lions and it remains to be seen whether the latter is handed with his debut during the forthcoming internationals.

Aside from Mount, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Tyrone Mings are the other potential candidates, who could make their maiden bow with the Three Lions during the forthcoming European qualifiers.
