According to British media Football Insider reports, Leeds United hopes to loan Chelsea midfielder Ross Barkley.
Leeds United have been asking for Udinese midfielder DePaul in recent days, but the news pointed out that although Leeds United and DePaul have negotiated a personal agreement, DePaul himself also hopes to join Leeds United, but the two teams have been unable to make a difference. The transfer fee is agreed and the transaction may not be completed.
The source told the media that under such circumstances, Leeds is considering DePaul's replacement, and they are currently looking at Chelsea midfielder Barkley.
Chelsea did not accidentally rent Barkley, but Leeds United need to face competition from Aston Villa.
