Leeds ready to bid for Chelsea midfielder Ross Barkley

Leeds United are moving for Chelsea midfielder Ross Barkley.

Football Insider says Leeds are considering a move for Barkley if they are unable to sign first-choice target Rodrigo de Paul.

Marcelo Bielsa remains keen on landing the Udinese star, but accepts he may have to look elsewhere if a deal cannot be completed.

Chelsea star Barkley has now emerged as a potential candidate for a move to Elland Road, with the 26-year-old valued at around £30million.

Barkley did score in the Blues' 6-0 Carabao Cup victory over Barnsley on Wednesday, but has not featured in either of their Premier League games so far this season.
