Barkley has scored some brilliant goals, with 21 Premier League strikes to his name, and while he won't come close to equalling Lampard's record haul (not many will), with the correct work ethic and attitude he could become a cult hero in West London. What he fails to understand, however, is that football is no normal business and it is capable of operating at a legal and moral level wholly without precedent in the modern world.

The Liverpool Echo newspaper reported that Anderson is "so concerned" with the transfer that he has "contacted the relevant policing authorities".

The public also agrees with him.

"When it got to the two years I met his agent and said 'We need to extend the contract'".

Discussing the Barkley transfer, he points out that Everton owner Farhad Moshiri announced on August 31 that a deal had been reached with Chelsea for the player for a fee of £35 million.

'[Arsenal] is very soon for him but we must be pleased because his physical condition is good, ' he said. "My hope is to have this player (available) very quickly".

In the letter, Mr Anderson tells FA chairman Greg Clarke and Premier League executive chairman Richard Scudamore that he feels "it is right that the public receive an assurance on this matter". In the worst case, it is the intention of lowering the player's transfer fee in the interests of the player, his agent, and the club that bought him.

Barkley, who was close to joining the Blues last summer, finally put pen to paper on a deal at Stamford Bridge last week, becoming Chelsea's first signing of the month.

He then calls upon the football chiefs to look into the transfer in order to "reassure fans that transfers will be monitored more closely in future and that no individuals are benefitting inappropriately".

Both players have similar resemblances in the ways they play.

It came just five months after he pulled out of a move on deadline day - thought to have been worth £35m to the Toffees.
