Chelsea chiefs plot €120M bid for Barcelona attacker Dembele

Chelsea are ready to test Barcelona's resolve with a bid for Ousmane Dembele.

Don Balon says Chelsea are willing to offer €120m for the French youngster - just a year after he left Borussia Dortmund for Barca in a €140m deal.

While he impressed in victory at Malaga, doubts persist over Dembele's ability to adapt his game to Barca's system. Indeed, senior players believe the attacker's individual style doesn't suit Barca and they do not see him succeeding long-term.

This is in contrast to Chelsea scouts, where the belief is with his pace and dribbling ability, Dembele would 'explode' in the Premier League. Which is reason enough for Blues owner Roman Abramovich to prepare a club record offer for the Frenchman this summer.
