Chelsea have reportedly been put on alert as Ousmane Dembele looks to push for a transfer away from Borussia Dortmund amid links with Manchester United and Barcelona.
Reports yesterday suggested Barca were making progress on a deal for the France international, but Dortmund then insisted he was not up for sale this summer.
Latest claims from Eurosport suggest Dembele could be ready to make life difficult for his club this summer as he has already set his heart on sealing a move away due to the departure of Thomas Tuchel as manager.
The 20-year-old is regarded as one of the best young players in Europe at the moment, and his fine form last season has now seen Chelsea join the running for his signature.
Dembele is likely to cost at least £70million, which would be a club-record for the Blues, who have also been strongly linked with a big-money move for Romelu Lukaku in attack.
Still, Antonio Conte is also ready to add Dembele to his ranks as he considers strengthening on the right-hand side, with Dries Mertens and Riyad Mahrez also previously linked as options in this area.
