Chelsea are interested in signing Lyon striker Moussa Dembele and have already had a bid for the striker rejected by the French club.

Chelsea legend Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has revealed why Chelsea boss Frank Lampard should push for the signing of Dembele.

“Obviously Tammy Abraham is doing really well but he is the only one really who is doing really well,” Hasselbaink told Daily Mail.

“They need to get a striker in. Moussa Dembele would be a magnificent signing for Chelsea. I know Moussa quite well. I faced him when I was QPR manager, he played ever so well and killed my defence.

“He has developed himself extremely well. He went to Celtic and played at a big club where the atmosphere and the pressure is there of winning. You have to win every match.

“Having already tasted that and gone through that pressure, and if Chelsea buy him, he is familiar with that. When you are at Chelsea, you have to be able to handle the pressure of winning things and he has shown at Celtic he can do that.

“More importantly, he is a killer. He is a goalscorer. He lives for goals. He scores goals in different ways, with his head, with his feet, left and right. He is quick, he is strong, he can still improve, he is still very young.

“Frank will improve him with Jody Morris, in his combination play, that can be better and improved. But what you can’t teach a player is being somewhere at the right time, and he has that a lot. Tammy has that as well, but at a big club you have to have a couple of strikers who are really good. You need competition.”
