Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele wants to join Chelsea on loan, according to El Gol Digital (via the Express).

Dembele is considered one of the most exciting young players on the planet. It’s for that reason that Barcelona parted with what the Express report to be a whopping £96M to sign him from Borussia Dortmund during the summer transfer window.

The Frenchman is one of very few players on the planet who has the talent and potential to be able to eventually replace the void left by the departure of Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain in a world-record deal.

El Gol Digital, however, report that Barca chiefs believe Dembele could need a stint out on loan to continue his development. It’s believed that a host of clubs would be interested in securing his services on a temporary basis, but Chelsea are Dembele’s preferred choice of destination.

If Chelsea are able to strike a deal with Barcelona to loan Dembele, we’d have a winger capable of complimenting Eden Hazard and ousting Willian and Pedro – if only for a season.

Would this be a good move for us, Blues? Using matchbook promo code you can have a bet.
