Chelsea Completed Signing Of Everton Star



The 24-year-old has signed a five and-a-half-years contract and will wear the number 8 shirt. Upon signing for the Premier League champions, Barkley said:
"I'm overwhelmed, I'm looking forward to it and I'm really excited to get started. To be given a fresh start at a new club like Chelsea, it's unbelievable for me. I'm looking
forward to continuing where I left off at the end of last season and hoping to improve and add more goals to my game".

Club director Marina Granovskaia added: "Ross is a player we have long admired and are certain he will prove to be an important player for Chelsea. He possesses outstanding technical and physical attributes, matched with good experience of the Premier League and a strong desire to
succeed at the highest level. We welcome him to the club and look forward to seeing him in action".

Barkley arrives with a wealth of experience for a player so young, having already made 150 Premier
League appearances for Everton, as well as being named in England squads for both the World Cup
and European Championships.
His versatility ensures he can play just behind the striker, in a deeper midfield role or in an advanced
wide position, with his ability to get on the ball and create chances one of the player’s biggest strengths.

A hamstring injury at the beginning of the current campaign has kept him out since August, which means he is eligible to play for the Blues in all
four competitions.

Speaking earlier before the transfer was completed Coach Antonio Conte Said: "We are talking about an English player, a young player, with good prospects for Chelsea".

"It’s a good opportunity for the club to buy this player. He’s a good prospect. He’s very young, I think he has a lot of space for improvement, he’s very strong physically with good technique".

"He’s a good prospect but it’s very important to understand when he can recover from his injury. He had a bad injury, he had surgery and he hasn’t
played for seven months. We must have great patience and, at the same time, hope to recover him very quickly so he can help us for the rest of the season".
