Wow-Oh-Wow! Chelsea ‘are holing talks’ with £131 million rated Frenchman Ousmane Dembele ahead of January move
There has been some shock reports emerge which have claimed Chelsea are holding talks with Barcelona star Ousmane Dembele.
Frank Lampard was appointed boss during the summer transfer window in a shock move, and he had to work with the side that he currently has as Chelsea were unable to sign any players after getting a ban at the beginning of the summer window.
But after appealing their ban last months, Chelsea have now found out that they will once again be able to sign players and improve on the side, especially as the Blues are seeking to clinch a top four spot and possibly some transfers.
And one man that is reportedly high up on the shopping list of Chelsea is that of Dembele
The 21-year old as been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons ever since making the £131 million move to Barcelona just over a year ago, and has been constantly linked with a move to Arsenal and Manchester United, with reports Barcelona are ready to cash in and try to bring back Neymar at the end of the season.
The youngster has failed to establish himself and has hit just 19 goals in 74 appearances for the Spanish giants, despite the fact he is one of the most ceartive sides in Europe right now.
Now Italian football journalist Nicolo Schira has opened up and claimed that Chelsea have begun talks with Barcelona about a possible £100 million transfer deal for the Frenchman in the January transfer window.
Schira tweeted: “#Chelsea is interested in Ousmane #Dembelè. Last week his agent has talked with Marina Granovskaia.”
Chelsea have the money, they have the credibility and they have the ability to finance this move for Dembele if they seriously feel that he will come in and help the side progress in the coming seasons.
But £100 million for a man that has failed to establish himself at Barcelona if a massive risk and Chelsea should switch their attentions to a player that is not always on the sidelines with injury.
He is a decent player with bags of potential, but he is not worth close to that asking price, it is far too much.
