Dembele to Chelsea still on?

Chelsea are pushing hard to sign Barcelona attacker Ousmane Dembele this summer, according to Spanish outlet Marca.

The west London giants are eyeing attacking reinforcements and reports claim that they could sign two forwards.

They are currently in talks with Manchester City for Raheem Sterling, and Marca claim that Dembele is also on the radar.

Thomas Tuchel worked with the Frenchman at Borussia Dortmund, and he is now keen on a reunion with the 25-year-old.

Tuchel would prefer to sign both Sterling and Dembele, but the final decision could be left to owner Todd Boehly.

Boehly has taken charge as the sporting director after the sacking of Marina, and he will hand transfer deals this summer.

The American has already sanctioned the loan exit of Romelu Lukaku, and there could be plenty of more departures.

This could coincide with multiple incomings. It remains to be seen whether Dembele's wage demands are acceptable.

Dembele has a worrying injury record, but the Frenchman may still want to be one of the highest earners at Chelsea.
