The link between Celtic and Ross Barkley continues to be mentioned by journalists outside Scotland.

Mark Hendry of Football Scotland has delivered the most reliable Celtic transfer news this summer and the journalist revealed Celtic aren’t looking at Ross. Despite that, there has been more journalists claiming a Celtic interest in the Chelsea man.

While discussing the player’s future, Ben Jacob’s credited Celtic with an interest and claimed Everton were not one of the Scottish Champions challengers for his signature.

Ross Barkley to Celtic Deal likelihood.

It seems like a deal that has so many obstacles, even if there were two willing parties. Ross is on massive wages at Chelsea and while he’s surplus to requirements, there’s no way the London club will take a major hit on his wages to send him out.

They’ll be looking to offload Ross on loan to a club who can cover a decent portion of his wages.

Bartley’s career has stalled at Stamford Bridge, the player not even making the official Premier League squad under Thomas Tuchel.

It still seems very unlikely.
