Lyon will allow £85 million star to leave in summer, with Chelsea looking to wrap up deal
Lyon will sell Moussa Dembele in the summer, with Chelsea keen on a deal, according to reports in the media
There has been ALOT of transfer speculation in the media over the past few months linking us with a number of possible deals, and a possible number of signings in order for Frank Lampard to improve his side.
And it is very obvious that the boss is keen to add another striker to his side, as Tammy Abraham cannot do things on his own, while Michy Batshuayi is seen more of an impact player off the bench, while Olivier Giroud is seemingly on his way out of the club.
And that has led to speculation in the media claiming that we are closing in on a deal for the impressive Dembele, who is being chased by all the top clubs in the world after another impressive start to the new season.
Some reports in the media even suggested that he is keen on a move to the Premier League, with the stumbling block becoming the valuation of the player, with Lyon reportedly keen to nail down £85 million for their star man, a fee that wedo not want to pay.
However, reports on L’EQUIPE, have now claimed that the French giants have decided that now is the time to cash in on Dembele and will let him leave in the summer if the asking price is actually met.
Look, we have said it before and we will say it again, money talks in football these days and if WE do offer anywhere near that £85 million that Lyon reportedly want, then the French club will do business, that is just how it is these days.
Dembele is a good striker that will be a better option that what we currently have behind Abraham next season.
