After meeting with Tuchel, Dembele is on his way to joining Chelsea from FC Barcelona.


Following a meeting with Chelsea head coach Thomas Tuchel, Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele is close to joining the Blues.

Dembele, who joined Catalonia from Borussia Dortmund in 2017 for €105 million ($109 million), will be free on June 30.

After rejecting many contract renewal offers, Barcelona expects him to leave the Camp Nou this summer and join a European competitor.PSG had been thought to be the frontrunner for his signature, with reports circulating that fellow World Cup winner and Les Bleus colleague Kylian Mbappe had demanded his presence at the Parc des Princes after rejecting Real Madrid and extending his contract with the Ligue 1 giants until 2025. However, after speaking with Chelsea's head coach, Thomas Tuchel, who previously managed Dembele at Dortmund, the 25-year-old appears to be on his way to joining the Premier League club in the coming days.

Dembele's probable role in the west London team, despite competition from Christian Pulic and Hakim Ziyech, was revealed.
