Ousmane Dembele news

Dembele tipped for Chelsea transfer

Chelsea have emerged as the most viable option for Barcelona attacker Ousmane Dembele this summer.

The Frenchman's deal with the Catalan giants expires on June 30, and he has yet to make a decision over his future.

A contract offer has been placed on the table, but it appears he could leave the La Liga outfit for a fresh challenge.

According to Sport, a number of clubs are keeping tabs, but Chelsea are in the best position to sign the World Cup winner.

The Blues have yet to negotiate terms with the 25-year-old, but they continue to remain the best transfer option for him.

Thomas Tuchel knows Dembele well from their time at Dortmund, and a reunion appears a realistic possibility this summer.

Dembele had another injury-plagued campaign last term, but the second half of the season went for him without any troubles.

He registered an impressive 13 assists from just 21 league outings. He would be a wonderful signing for the Blues if he can stay unscathed.
