The transfer window has been open for two full days and all is quiet on the buying front.
Although we’re pretty certain Chelsea will exercise their financial muscle before the window closes, we’re realistic enough to acknowledge business is most likely to be completed in the latter half of the month.
However, if the emerging speculation is to be believed then the rumours suggesting that Chelsea are interested in acquiring the services of the former Fulham and Celtic striker, Moussa Dembele, are gathering momentum.
Lurking in the European media source, footmercato is the inference that Chelsea have been unsuccessful in a bid for Dembele, who is now on the books of the LA Ligue club, Lyon.
Our source is implying that the French club have turned down a bid, said to be of the magnitude of £34 million, for the 23-year-old striker.
If that is the case it remains to be seen whether Chelsea are prepared to increase their bid and by how much.
But the big question is:
Would Lyon's Moussa Dembele Be Your Choice When It Came To A New Striker?
My view is that I’d question whether he’s any better than Michy Batshuai, could we be buying someone of identical attributes?
Please feel free to offer your viewpoint on the subject matter in our comment facility beneath this article.
