Lyon striker Moussa Dembele is one of the forward options Chelsea are considering trying to sign in January.

Olivier Giroud and Michy Batshuayi are likely to leave Chelsea during the transfer window and Frank Lampard has been tracking Dembele for some time. Sky Sports News has been told Lampard sees similarities between Dembele and former Chelsea forward Didier Drogba.

Manchester City are interested in a January deal for Bournemouth’s Nathan Ake – despite a contract clause seemingly putting Chelsea in pole position to bring him back to Stamford Bridge.

The west London club inserted a £40m buy-back clause into the centre-back’s £20m deal to Bournemouth in 2017, and they are now understood to want Ake back after their FIFA transfer ban was lifted.
