Price set! Chelsea can sign unhappy Barcelona star Dembele for £89 million
Barcelona will demand a fee of around £88.7 million for the services of unhappy winger and Chelsea target Ousmane Dembele.
The 21-year-old, who joined the club for £97m from Borussia Dortmund last summer, has been in the transfer headlines all season after reports in the media suggested that he was set to be sold by the Spaniards in the coming transfer windows.
It is believed that Barcelona are looking to acquire the services of Neymar or Kylian Mbappe and know they must make space in the squad, and raise some funds as both men could cost in excess of £200 million.
And with Maurizio Sarri eyeing up possible long-term replacements for the departing Eden Hazard, who is expected to leave and sign for Real Madrid at the end of the season, reports have suggested they are looking to complete a bargain deal for the Frenchman in the January transfer window for a fee of around £60 million.
Now, according to Sport, Barcelona have told Dembele to improve his attitude at the club or he will be sold in the next couple of transfer windows, with the Spaniards reportedly willing to sell for £88.7 million.[the_ad id=”238″]
Is Dembele the right kind of move for us right now?
We have a number of world class wingers at the club and are not in desperate need of adding the likes of Dembele in the coming transfer windows, despite all the speculation surrounding Hazard.
So if Dembele does come up for sale in the January window, maybe it is best that we do not make a move and focus on trying to sign a new defender or striker, as that is the area they need to work on the most.
