According to media outlet Fichajes via Goal, Chelsea will be looking to sign Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembélé again next season.

The Blues pushed to sign the France international in the summer as a free agent but the 25 year old winger renewed with Barcelona instead, signing a two year contract.

Chelsea have now received greenlight to make a move for Dembele next summer after it emerged the 25 year old has a €50million release clause in his Barcelona contract.

Chelsea will be looking to finally secure his signing by triggering the release clause next June.
