Barnes next on Chelsea wanted list
Chelsea have been linked with any number of forwards in the last week. I was amazed to see them supposedly keen to sign Andy Carroll from West Ham and more so when they turned their attentions to Stoke City’s Peter Crouch.
Fernando Llorente at Spurs and former Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko came next and today they have, according to reports, Ashley Barnes.
Barnes has been with the Clarets just four years and is under contract until the end of next season. Of course, he’s already enjoyed the limelight at Stamford Bridge back in the 2014/15 season.
It seems to have come from Sky Sports and it has certainly been on the yellow bar on Sky Sports News.
I have to say I’d be surprised if they did sign Barnes, or some of those others mentioned above, but in football you should never be surprised.Share this page :
