Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is hopeful that he could help Ross Barkley secure a place with England squad for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

According to Conte, he wants Barkley, who has not played yet due to a hamstring injury since May, to be available as soon as possible to prove his worth in the upcoming biggest event on June.

“We have five months to show he deserves a call with the national team for the World Cup. I hope [he gets one], because it means he will do very well with us. It’s important for me to see him, to understand his physical condition. My hope is to have this player [available] very quickly.” Conte stated

The club’s new signing midfielder recently moved from Everton to Chelsea for a fee that believes to be £15million plus add-ons as his contract with the Toffeemen was set to expire this summer.

In addition, the 24-year-old Barkley signed a five and half year contract at the Stamford Bridge and Conte expects him to adapt team’s strategy in the game.

“He can play in midfield, if we play with three midfielders, or number 10 if we play 3-4-3. Before playing we must be sure that he is into our idea of football. Otherwise, it’s a problem for him and it’s a problem for the rest of the team.” Conte added
