According to The Daily Mirror, the Blues want to get rid of Barkley before the 2022–23 season begins in August.
Barkley only started one Premier League game last year.
Only one year is left on the England international’s Chelsea deal.
The 28-year-old spent time on loan at Aston Villa and Everton in the 2020–21 season before leaving Everton in 2018 to sign with Chelsea for £15 million.
The chance to sign him this summer has now been extended to clubs like Villa and Everton.
