Chelsea legend, Frank Lampard has given his verdict about the club’s new marking, Ross Barkley.
Lampard trusts Barkley is an awesome player and he will prevail at Stamford Bridge.
He added that the Blues’ choice to sign the midfielder from Everton for an expense of £15 million is a decent one.
“It’s an easy decision for Chelsea as a club. £15m for the capacity of Ross Barkley,” Lampard revealed to BT Sport.
“I know people talk about how he hasn’t quite maybe fulfilled his potential but what you’re buying for £15m in a market where you’re paying £30-40m for players of less ability, I think Ross is a great buy.”
The Premier League champion completed the signing of the England international on Friday after he was linked with a move away from Goodison Park during the last few months.
