Ross Barkley has revealed he wants to emulate his idol Frank Lampard at Chelsea and add goals to his game.

The midfielder is hoping to score 20 goals from midfield for Chelsea this season.

“I believe I can hit the 20-goals-a-season mark,” Barkley told the Telegraph. “It’s a lot, but it’s achievable. You see Lamps do it and Stevie G (Steven Gerrard) and (Paul) Scholes.

“Frank is an example for me. He joined the club at a similar age to me and was at a similar stage of his career.

“He’s someone to look at with the success he achieved for the club and for himself. He was an idol of mine from when I was a young lad, watching the Champions League and seeing the goals he scored.

“If I could achieve half of what he did here, then that would be a success.”
