Ousmane Dembele who is currently on the books of Spanish giants Barcelona is now being wanted by Premier League side Chelsea as Lampard is trying to bolster his squad again.

Before the start of the ongoing Premier League season, Frank Lampard was supported by Chelsea chiefs to bring in some big legs to Stamford Bridge.

But despite the huge amount of money spent by the club, Chelsea have been struggling so far this term in the Premier League.

According to the report on UK Sun, Barcelona chiefs are ready to sell Ousmane Dembele with the player himself said not to be interested in contract talks.
