Report: Ousmane Dembele’s arrival at Chelsea sees exits for Blues players


Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele’s potential arrival at Chelsea could see Christian Pulisic, Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner exit, according to reports.

The 24-year-old Frenchman is set to leave the Catalan giants this summer, following contract disputes between the club and the player.

Blues manager Thomas Tuchel, who previously worked with Dembele at Borussia Dortmund, has reportedly shown interest in signing the striker.

Matt Law, via the Podcast London is Bluethinks Thomas Tuchel could choose to sell Christian Pulisic, Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech and bring in Ousmane Dembele on a free transfer.

“But yes, I could definitely see them selling Pulisic/Werner/Ziyech and bringing Dembele in for free because it’s clear that Tuchel really likes him.

“So it’s realistic, but I think it will depend on one or two outings.”

Dembele has fallen a bit out of favor in Barcelona’s ranks, with Ferran Torres joining their attack.


Moreover, since some salary issues between his agent and the club, Dembele’s exit looks more and more likely by the day.

Chelsea are among a host of clubs interested in signing him, but if they were to bring in the Frenchman, some departures might be required.

With signing big under Romelu Lukaku, as well as regular starter Mason Mount, in the squad, Pulisic, Werner and Ziyech, as well as Kai Havertz, all struggled to secure a spot in the squad.
