Chelsea midfielder Ross Barkley is believed to be attracting massive interest from Newcastle. The Magpies are on the brink of a £300m-takeover led by the Saudi Crown Prince Mohamed bin Salman, and Newcastle will be massively backed by the new owners in the summer transfer window.

Ross Barkley is believed to be a top target for Newcastle, with manager Rafa Benitez believed to be targeted by the would be owners.

However, according to Football Insider, the Toon face an uphill struggle convincing Barkley to abandon life in London.

Barkley has struggled to get a foothold in the Chelsea team since joining in 2018, and most Chelsea fans who have reacted to news of Newcastle’s interest are keen to see the 26-year-old leave the club.
