According to the Metro, Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea are all interested in signing Everton playmaker Ross Barkley this summer.

Highly-rated but highly inconsistent

When Ross Barkley first broke into the Everton first-team, he was hailed as the future England number ten. However, things have not quite turned out like that for the Wavertree-born star.

European football expert Julian Laurens believes Arsenal won’t make any new signings until they resolve the futures of Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil, amid rumours of Olympique Lyonnais striker Alexandre Lacazette being high on their wish list this summer.

Last season young Arsenal defender Calum Chambers found himself loaned out to Middlesbrough, who were eventually relegated from the Premier League.

The young defender was one of Boro’s most consistent players though and the north east side’s defensive record was not the problem. They went down because they were toothless in attack. Chambers and Ben Gibson formed a very good centre-back pair.

Chambers made 24 appearances for Boro, despite being injured for some of the campaign. His performances suggest that the 22-year-old is now ready to play regular first team football in the top-flight.

Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang could be on his way to Paris Saint-Germain this summer, with the Ligue 1 runners-up currently unopposed to procuring his signature.

In 2016/17, the Gabon international netted 40 goals.
