According to Sport Witness, Chelsea are interested in signing Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele and have the capacity to sign the France international.

Dembele, whose Barcelona contract expires at the end of the season, has also been linked to Newcastle United, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur.

Barcelona are reportedly keen on extending Dembele’s contract but his agent is delaying negotiations with the Spanish club. This is done with an intention to hold talks with Chelsea and other interested clubs from January 1st.

The report also pointed out that Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel knows Dembele ‘better than anyone’ as he managed him when the pair were at Borussia Dortmund. The report also pointed out that the France international was ‘extremely happy’ under Tuchel and ‘was never injured’.
