Chelsea target Ousmane Dembélé has dropped a huge Barcelona transfer hint with a five-word message to a supporter whilst away on holiday.
The Blues are understood to be highly interested in the Frenchman as manager Thomas Tuchel looks to breathe new life into his Chelsea attack ahead of the 2022/23 season. If Romelu Lukaku is moved on amid Inter Milan loan talks, it is expected that Todd Boehly and his board will then nail down incoming business
It is already well known that French pair Jules Kounde and Dembele are two high-priority transfer targets that Tuchel has name-checked to the Blues hierarchy and despite initial optimism that a deal for both could be wrapped up quickly, it has gone slightly quiet on the pair.
Reinforcements are, of course, needed and in Jules Kounde and Ousmane Dembele it’s clear Chelsea are looking at players in the market that are ready now but with room to grow and improve,” Chief Chelsea correspondent for football.london Adam Newson reported in his latest Q&A segment.
football.london also understands that the Barcelona player will make his final decision after returning from his holiday. But as it currently stands, nothing has been agreed upon salary and contract-wise between the current World Champions and Dembele’s agent Moussa Sissoko.
As Chelsea fans watch on anxiously for more developments in this ongoing transfer saga, every little hint dropped over this summer period will be micro-analysed by all wondering where the 24-year-old ends up for the 2022/23 campaign. Therefore, a clip that has surfaced on social media has proved intriguing. A Barcelona supporter who spotted Dembele on his holiday used the time in their short interaction to find out more about what’s going on and his responses were quite significant.
He was asked all three of these questions in French: “Are you staying in Barcelona? Heard anything about Chelsea You do not want to work with Tuchel?”
