Ross Barkley has revealed that he is “obsessed” with improving his form following his transfer from Everton to Chelsea FC this month.

The England midfielder became the Blues’ first signing of the January transfer window earlier in the month when he signed a long-term contract with the west London side.

Barkley has been getting used to life at Stamford Bridge in recent days as he bids to force his way into Antonio Conte’s first team in the second part of the season.

The 24-year-old missed the first few months of the season due to a hamstring injury but is now back fit as he bids to fight for a spot in the team at Chelsea.

And the midfielder has delivered an insight into his mindset as he bids to improve as much as possible under Conte at Stamford Bridge.

Speaking during an interview with Sky Sports, Barkley said: “I am obsessed with improving.

“I want to get to a level where I am regarded as one of the best and coming to a club like Chelsea if the right platform to improve.

“I want to be regarded as a world-class midfielder. At the moment I have a lot of potential and a lot of world-class attributes and I want to showcase that at a massive club like Chelsea and win things and be regarded as a top quality player.”

Barkley will be hoping to feature for Chelsea when the Blues return to League Cup action on Wednesday with a trip to Arsenal.

The Blues played out a goalless draw with the Gunners in the first leg of their semi-final clash at Stamford Bridge earlier in the month.
