Should Chelsea look into the possibility of signing Borussia Dortmund prodigy Ousmane Dembele?
As per the Daily Mail, Barcelona have opened talks to sign the Frenchman. They look clear favourites in the soccer betting, as they seek an adequate replacement for Neymar following his move to the Parc des Princes.
The Daily Mail believe that Dortmund could be tempted to allow Dembele to leave if they received an offer in the region of £90M.
Why are Chelsea not in the running to sign him? He would provide a direct upgrade on both Willian and Pedro, and has the potential to surpass even Eden Hazard.
If we are serious about reestablishing ourselves among the world elite following our return to the Champions League, this is the calibre of players we should be looking to sign.
Unfortunately, Dembele moving to Stamford Bridge at any point, let alone before the end of the transfer window, does not appear to be anything more than a pipe-dream.
