Sarri sent Dembele, Malcom warning as Sarri eyes big Chelsea deals
ESPN FC pundit and former Major League Soccer star Alejandro Moreno has claimed Chelsea targets Malcom and Ousmane Dembele would be better off if they stayed at Barcelona.
With the January transfer window just a few weeks away and Maurizio Sarri looking to bring in a few fresh faces to help us challenge Manchester City for the Premier League title, and hopefully push on to add a Europa League title to the cabinet by the end of the year, and we have bee linked with moves for both Malcom and Dembele.
Malcom is seemingly surplus-to-requirements at Barcelona this season after failing to make any sort of impact on the side, and recent reports have suggested he could be offered to us as part of the deal which sees Willian head to Spain, with some reports even claiming that Barca have made contact with the Brazilians agent in a bid to seal a deal.
Dembele on the other-hand has been in decent form this season for Barca and has already netted five times for the Spaniards, but the hierarchy are not convinced that he is the immediate replacement for Lionel Messi and are reportedly looking to offload in the coming windows in a bid to land their transfer targets.
But Moreno has claimed that the duo would be best served if they stayed at Barcelona, and rumours linking them with a switch to the Premier League is just wishful thinking, he told the Daily Star website: “I don’t think that either one of them should force a move, nor will force a move.
“They’re fine at Barcelona.”[the_ad id=”238″]
Would both Dembele and Malcom add something to the squad here at Stamford Bridge?
There has been a lot of speculation over the last few weeks which has suggested that a number of our players will be leaving the club in the coming transfer windows, and Sarri needs to splash the cash and bring in adequate replacements. But even though Dembele and Malcom are solid players, they are not good enough for us right now.
Malcom is too young to make an immediate impact, while Dembele is over-priced at £100 million and certainly not physically strong enough to cope with the fast-paced, physically demanding Premier League.
So if Sarri did make a move for both men to bring them to Stamford Bridge, I fear it could be money spent in the wrong department as there are much better players out there for the same kind of money.
