Chelsea are into their summer transfer time, and one of their targets appears to be Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele, whose contract expires at the end of this month.
He’s not said much about his future, but Football.London claim to have a source who has told them he will make his decision: after his holidays.
Well, that seems like a good time to do it, but it would be interesting to know his thinking on the timing.
As a free agent, he may want to agree a deal now while clubs still have their whole summer budgets ready and waiting to be used up.
On the other hand, he might be better off playing the waiting game and seeing which clubs start to get really desperate as the pool of good players dries up later in the summer.
It’s a risk, especially given his injury record but one he might just want to take.
