‘First good news of 2018’, ‘Absolute bargain’ – Delighted Chelsea fans react to transfer update on Twitter

The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are reacting to the news that Ross Barkley looks set to become a Chelsea player by the end of the week.

It has been no secret in English football that Chelsea have been admirers of Barkely since the summer of 2017, and it looks like their interest may finally lead to a permanent transfer within the next 48 hours. According to reports in The SunBarkley is in London today to complete a medical ahead of a proposed £15 million move.

The likes of Bakayoko and Drinkwater have failed to impress the Chelsea supporters in central-midfield since signing in the summer, but they may have to adopt even greater patience with Barkley, considering he is yet to play a single minute of football this season due to a troublesome hamstring injury.

The news that Barkley is set to join Chelsea has sparked an extremely mixed reaction from supporters on social media since the story broke earlier today.

A handful of the Chelsea supporters have understandably criticised the move due to concerns over his failure to live up to his potential so far, and also due to his recent absence with injury.

However, there are plenty of fans clad in Chelsea blue who are delighted to see their club make such swift progress during the January window, and they are looking forward to seeing their new man in action as soon as possible.

Here’s how the Blues faithful reacted to the Barkley news on Twitter…
