Lyon are ready to let long-term Chelsea target Moussa Dembele go for £45million, with Frank Lampard attempting to convince Marina Granovskaia to make it happen.

There has been ALOT of transfer speculation in the media over the past few months linking Chelsea with a number of possible deals, and a possible number of signings in order for Frank Lampard to improve his side.

And it is very obvious that the Chelsea boss is keen to add another striker to his side, as TAMMY ABRAHAM cannot do things on his own, while Michy Batshuayi is seen more of an impact player off the bench, while Olivier Giroud is also a bench warmer

And that has led to speculation in the media claiming that Chelsea are closing in on a deal for the impressive Dembele, who is being chased by all the top clubs in the world after another impressive start to the new season.

Some reports in the media even suggested that he is keen on a move to the Premier League, with the stumbling block becoming the valuation of the player, with Lyon reportedly keen to nail down £85 million for their star man, a fee that Chelsea do not want to pay.

However, According to L’Equipe the Chelsea boss has some convincing to do to make the move happen, but Lyon are willing to drop their fee demands for Dembele and will reportedly accept £45 million for the impressive striker, who is taking the French League by storm.

Dembele’s 22 goals in 42 games this season gives a good indication he has the ability to succeed in England, and add to this already exciting, young Chelsea attack.
