Chelsea appear to be in the running to sign Borussia Dortmund sensation Ousmane Dembele.
According to Eurosport, the Frenchman is keen to seal a move away from the Bundesliga heavyweights this summer, but a potential move to Barcelona looks to be off the table.
As per Eurosport, this has placed Chelsea on high alert, with the Premier League champions thought to be keen on signing Dembele this summer. However, our pursuit of the 20-year-old will not be straightforward by any means.
Eurosport note that Manchester United will provide Chelsea with stern competition in the battle to secure Dembele’s services, and that will not be the only hurdle Antonio Conte will need to overcome.
Eurosport believe that Dortmund do not feel as though they need to sell Dembele, despite his desire to leave the club. It is reported that they could demand a fee in the region of £70M in exchange for the prodigy, but that sort of figure is not expected to deter either Chelsea or United.
