Burnley are considering extending a deadline day transfer lifeline to Chelsea outcast Ross Barkley.

Ross Barkley, a Chelsea midfielder, has piqued Burnley’s attention…

Burnley are interested in pursuing a late bid for Ross Barkley, but a deal appears to be difficult to complete with only a few days left in the transfer season. The Clarets have already completed the acquisition of Swansea City’s Welsh international full-back Connor Roberts this morning, and Sean Dyche is open to making one more signing before the deadline tonight in order to bolster his defensive line.

Despite appearing in pre-season, Barkley was stripped of his No. 8 shirt by Chelsea earlier this month and is not in Thomas Tuchel’s plans for the season.

He’s been informed he can find a new club, but there hasn’t been much interest in him.

According to Express Sport, Burnley are considering a late deal for Barkley, despite early indications that the Clarets’ economics do not add up.

The offensive midfielder is said to make around £100,000 per week, which could present issues, and Chelsea is anticipated to ask for a loan fee, despite their desire to have him off their books permanently.

Chelsea is likely to demand a minor loan fee, despite their desire to get the player off their books.

Barkley spent last season on loan at Aston Villa, where he impressed in patches but was not signed on a permanent basis by Dean Smith.

The England international has 33 caps for his country and is in desperate need of some love to resurrect his career after falling off the radar in west London.

On deadline day, he was one of several players in the shop window, but Ruben Loftus-Cheek is set to stay at Chelsea.
