Chelsea increasingly hopeful of risky Dembele deal » Chelsea News

Ousmane Dembele is a free agent at the end of this month, and the connections between him and Chelsea only get stronger.

Sky Sports are reporting that Chelsea are increasingly close to signing the winger, to add some dynamic attacking threat to the Blues’ inconsistent attack.

The Blues will need to shift one of their existing attacking options if they want to get in the Frenchman, but that looks increasingly likely with Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic all potentially on the chopping block.

Dembele’s work with Thomas Tuchel in the past is also likely a major factor – the pair of them both had their breakouts together at Borussia Dortmund.

It’s a risky signing, of that there’s no doubt. Even with no transfer fee, the winger’s patchy injury record and inconsistent spells at Barcelona counteract his obvious talent.

But it might just be a gamble Tuchel is willing to take.
