According to Daily Star, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is pushing the club to complete the transfer of Lyon striker Moussa Dembele.

Despite Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas stating this week that Dembele isn’t for sale, it is believed a deal can be completed for the 23 year old.

“There is interest from both of those clubs. The question I think is whether either of them will get to the level of fee that Lyon will accept in this window,” Duncan Castles said, according to Daily Star.

“I believe that Frank Lampard is keen on Dembele and pushing Chelsea to do that.

“The representation that Dembele has, which involves Pina Zahavi, an agent who Chelsea viewed a lot in recent years to do deals, I think is also something that can help this deal happen.

“Chelsea have a lot of money to spend, so they could go to a very high fee to satisfy Lyon. But I think the question is whether they are ready to do that now or whether they wait till the summer in the expectation that they can get Dembele for a lesser fee then, taking on the risk that some other clubs come in and compete for him at that period.”
