"I could 100% see them pulling it off" - Dean Jones says Chelsea could complete signing of 25-year-old superstar whom Thomas Tuchel 'loves'


Transfer insider Dean Jones believes Chelsea could seal Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele's signature this summer.

Dembele's current contract at the Nou Camp is set to expire at the end of this month. Blaugrana president Joan Laporta recently confirmed (as quoted by The Sun ) that the 25-year-old is yet to accept their latest contract offer. As things stand, Dembele is set to become a free agent.

Jones believes the Frenchman looks "more and more likely" to leave Barcelona this summer after five years at the club. He added that he could see Chelsea signing him this summer and told GIVEMESPORT:

“Ousmane Dembele, I could 100% see them pulling it off. I think that if he does leave Barcelona, which is looking more and more likely, then I think he’ll go to Chelsea because Tuchel loves him.”

Dembele notably drew the attention of top clubs around the world while playing under Thomas Tuchel at Borussia Dortmund. The winger scored 10 goals and recorded 21 assists in 49 matches across all competitions during the 2016-17 season.

Dortmund notably lifted the DFB-Pokal trophy during that campaign, with Dembele scoring in the final against Eintracht Frankfurt.
