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.
