Player to watch – Ross Barkley

Ross Barkley has really impressed for Luton this season, providing the creative spark and driving force from midfield.

The former Everton and Chelsea man has chipped in with four goals and four assists in the Premier League this season, and his performances have brought him to the attention of a number of top clubs who might just make a move for the former England international this summer.

Attracting interest from bigger clubs

We're backing Barkley to put in another impressive display this weekend against Bournemouth, even though it might not be enough to guide his team to the win they really want and need.
