Glen Johnson, a former Chelsea right-back, has advised the club to make a bid for Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembele.
If Chelsea can get Dembele for free this summer, Johnson feels it would be a wise financial choice.
Johnson told bettingodds.com, “I feel it’s a no-brainer.”
“You’ve got to be clever with your business.” You can’t just go out and buy all of the greatest players for top cash.
“If you can acquire players on the cheap or for free, it’s a no-brainer.” Consider what Dembele would cost if he had four years left on his deal. So, sure, I believe you should take advantage of such an offer if it becomes available.”
Chelsea would be wise to spend nothing on acquiring Dembele after already losing Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen for free.
