Chelsea and PSG may go head-to-head in the race for Barcelona striker Ousmane Dembélé.
The 24-year old will be available on a free transfer at the end of the season, having refused to sign a new deal at the Camp Nou which would have seen him accept a salary reduction , albeit over a longer term.
That led to threats to exclude him from the squad altogether but, despite that, he remains in the first-team picture under Xavi.
Hopes that something may break the contract impasse though, seem far-fetched, and it increasingly looks like he will walk way from the Catalans for nothing.
The Frenchman, though, will not come cheap because of his wage demands, and Chelsea and PSG are two of the few clubs that could afford him.
The Premier League side’s interest may indicate they are willing to cut their losses on Romelu Lukaku after just one season.
