”I’ll Take Him’ ‘Why Would He Come To West Ham? Fans Debate Loan Swoop For Chelsea Playmaker

West Ham are interested in signing Chelsea attacking midfielder Ross Barkley on loan, according to reports in the English media.

Hammers boss David Moyes knows the 26-year-old well after giving him his debut for Everton back in 2011, and he is said to be keen on bringing him to the London Stadium.

Some supporters on Twitter think he would be a success at the club:



Other fans don’t think a move for Barkley would be realistic:

Barkley has moved down the pecking order at Chelsea, after having started four of Frank Lampard’s first seven league games in charge. Injuries have also played a role with the midfielder having been sidelined for a number of weeks.

The question is, though, do West Ham really need another playmaker in the team with Felipe Anderson, Pablo Fornals and Manuel Lanzini all at the club? Perhaps Moyes sees Barkley playing in a deeper role in the long term but still, it doesn’t seem he is a player that the club urgently need.
