Chelsea have held talks with Ousmane Dembele as he looks set to leave Barcelona
Dembele has greatly frustrated since arriving at the Camp Nou. Due to a combination of both poor form and persistent injuries, he has made just 126 appearances for the Spanish giants, scoring 30 goals
However, there has been some shock speculation in the media that we may be open to the idea of bringing him to the Premier League in order to add a bit more of a goal-threat to that Attack.
Dembele enjoyed his best form at Dortmund under current boss Thomas Tuchel, so it would not be a surprise to see the two reunited at Stamford Bridge, especially as Chelsea know they may be able to get the Frenchman for a bargain
Dembele is out of contract at the end of the current campaign and talks between player and club over a Nou Camp extension have recently ground to a halt following the Frenchman’s substantial demands.
The winger is reportedly pushing for an annual salary of £25million and a separate signing bonus of £25m, while his agent is believed to have stipulated a commission of £13m – demands which have been deemed ‘crazy’ by the Barcelona hierarchy, according to reports in Spain.
With a departure now appearing imminent, we have emerged as one of the frontrunners in the race for his signature having held discussions with the player this month, according to SPORT
Look, there is no doubt that Dembele has massive amounts of potential, but the player is just too injury prone. If we just want to add to their squad, then he could be a decent signing.
But he is no longer a regular starter and not any better than what we already have. So if the reports are true and the club are keen on a transfer deal, he would be a signing that will not make much of an impact at the club.
