Chelsea send scouts to watch £40m target score in cup tie » Chelsea News

Chelsea scouts watched Moussa Dembele play and score for Lyon against Brest last night according to the Daily Mail.


Rumours have consistently linked the former Celtic forward with a return to the British Isles, especially in recent weeks as Chelsea have appeared to step up their efforts to secure a backup for Tammy Abraham.

Dembele looks like a good option. Good enough to make an instant impact, but not too high profile to sit on the bench for a while as Tammy remains first choice.

His quality is evident in his great goals to games ratio, although that was boosted by his time at a dominant Celtic side.

However the Blues weren’t the only team with eyes on the League Cup win for the home side – Manchester United also had a man there, apparently also watching the forward in action.

If we want him this January, we might have to get a move on.
