Chelsea is close to completing a forward move, with Tuchel playing a key part in the process
According to the print version of Sport, as translated by Sport Witness, the France international is poised to become a free agent, and it appears that his previous boss Thomas Tuchel is now playing a crucial part in bringing him to Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea supporters will be hoping that these fresh transfer speculations are true, as Dembele might be a great free agent acquisition.
Even if things haven’t gone as planned for Dembele at Barcelona, he is still a fantastic natural talent who might rediscover his best form with the proper management and system.
In fact, Dembele has never appeared to be a great match for Barcelona’s style of play, but he showed significant progress under Xavi in the second part of last season.
After the troubles of players like Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech, and Christian Pulisic in the wide-forward positions, Chelsea really need someone like that up front.
