Reports in the media over the past couple of days have claimed Chelsea are interested in Lyon striker Moussa Dembele.

Chelsea have had a great start to the new Premier League season and al the young talent at the squad have been impressive under the guidance of Frank Lampard, but there has been a lot of transfer speculation in the media which has suggested that Olivier Giroud could be leaving the club in January.

Giroud has had to play second fiddle to TAMMY ABRAHAM up top as the Englishman has been in brilliant form for Chelsea this season, and reports in the media have claimed that Lampard will allow the Frenchman to leave the club if he is still unhappy and is interested in a move away.

And with the reports in the media suggesting that Chelsea have their transfer ban date set for November 20th, there is a real chance that a few players could arrive in the transfer window, with Dembele reportedly now on the shopping list according to the Times.

Dembele has become one of the most exciting players to watch in the French League and has attracted interest from the likes of Manchester United, Real Madrid and Juventus since his move from Scottish Champions Celtic.

He is more settled under new manager Rudi Garcia than previous boss Sylvinho and less likely to push for a move in January, but it has been claimed that Lyon will allow the striker to leave the club if their £85 million valuation is met.

Look CHELSEA have started the new season in fine fashion and Lampard has managed to get this very young, exciting team playing some great football, but they do need to add something to their squad in the coming windows, with a new defender and striker on the shopping list.

And with the £150 million that Lampard is expected to get in the January window, it could be a very exciting transfer window for Chelsea fans, who are desperate for some fresh faces to come in and help get the side back challenging for more than a top four spot and Champions League.
