Chelsea Star on-loan at Aston Villa, Ross Barkley is set to return to the club after his loan at the Villa Park comes to an end.
Barkley joined Villa on loan for the rest of the season, and has produced fantastic performances for Dean Smith’s side.
Nevertheless, a hamstring injury in November caused him to miss eight matches, and he has struggled to reach his early season heights.
He is highly admired at Villa, but the price tag laid down by Chelsea could hamper a permanent move.
Sports Illustrated reports that Barkley is set to return to Chelsea in the summer.
The arrival of new boss Thomas Tuchel as manager over Frank Lampard is a negative for Barkley.
Lampard rated Barkley very highly, and it is unclear if Tuchel sees the attacking midfielder as a first team option.
