Didier Drogba Sends Message To Ousmane Dembele Amid Chelsea Transfer Interest

The former Chelsea striker believes Ousmane Dembele can be a good fit under Tuchel at Chelsea after seeing his spark back at Dortmund

Didier Drogba has hinted Ousmane Dembele to a Thomas Tuchel reunion with Chelsea trailing closely on the Frenchman’s radar following the arrival of the new owner.

Barcelona are looking to offload players to be able to free their financial state but Dembele appears to be one of the names they wish to keep as they are already offering him a renewal offer with his contract days to expiration.

Chelsea on the other hand are said pushing to land the winger as a free agent as they rely on past relationship with Thomas Tuchel who spent time with Dembele at Dortmund.

Having earlier offered an underwhelming contract, Chelsea have now offered a satisfying contract that impresses the player’s camp and now hopeful to make a deal happen.

Former Chelsea Striker, Didier Drogba was quizzed on chances of Dembele doing well if he manages to join Chelsea; “Dembele is very talented, I see him as a brother, maybe because we speak same language.

“I have watched him in the past, even when he was at Dortmund. I can tell how well he plays despite having not a very good injury record.

“I think he can be very instrumental to Tuchel if he goes to Chelsea. They want him and Tuchel does too. I think he will play good at Chelsea.

“Competition in England is more serious than in Spain and I think that is what a player like Dembele needs at this point of his career time.”

Chelsea are looking to make Dembele the highest paid player in the squad if he joins on free transfer after seeing how well most of their past free transfers has turned out well.
