Chelsea ‘resolved to beat Manchester United to Moussa Dembele’
Chelsea are apparently still planning to sign Lyon striker Moussa Dembele this summer in spite of proposals that Manchester United have just agreed a deal for the Frenchman.
Dembele has been in amazing form for his French club during the 2019-20 campaign, scoring multiple times in 42 appearances in all competitions, including 16 goals for 27 Ligue 1 games.
An ongoing report guaranteed that Man United had agreed a £62m with Lyon for the transfer of the 23-year-old, who featured for Celtic before playing in France.
In any case, as indicated by ESPN, Moussa Dembele is still Chelsea’s ‘favored choice’ as the London giants hope to bring competition for Tammy Abraham throughout this present summer’s transfer window.
The report, however, claims that RB Leipzig’s Timo Werner and Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are likewise being considered by Frank Lampard’s side.
The Blues, in the interim, are purportedly keen to offload huge number of five first-team players ahead of the 2020-21 campaign so as to raise extra cash.
