The Blues have been in direct contact with Ousmane Dembele’s agent, according to transfer expert Dean Jones.
For the past weeks, Dembele has been the subject of a potential late move away from Barcelona as he has failed to reach a new agreement with the Spanish club.
The indication of things at Camp Nou showed that the Catalans are ready to let him leave this January transfer window.
With this, Chelsea have been monitoring his situation and have been heavily linked with signing him this window or in the summer by a number of different sources, most recently by The Athletic.
Dembele will become a free agent in the summer, and it seems to be the best time for Chelsea to sign him, but due to the circumstances, Chelsea are said to be pushing for him during the final days of this current transfer window.
He’s in Barcelona for a ‘crucial meeting’ according to an insider, Shay Lugassi.
We will have to wait for a matter of days to see if the deal will work out.
