Chelsea have reportedly offered a bid of around £42.6million to Lyon for the transfer of striker Moussa Dembele.

And it seems as though this offer has made Lyon seriously consider letting the French striker leave, though they want to sign a replacement before ending his sale, according to Don Balon.

Despite Moussa Dembele also recently being massively linked as a target for Arsenal by Le 10 Sport, it would look Chelsea are now edging closer to winning this particular transfer struggle, if Don Balon’s report is anything to go by.

The Blues have been massively linked with Moussa Dembele before, and it makes sense that manager Frank Lampard might view him as an excellent signing for this winter.

The Blues have looked a little light up front this campaign, becoming overly reliant on youngster Tammy Abraham in that position.

And while the England international has performed well, Frank Lampard could do with someone like Moussa Dembele to provide more depth in attack as the likes of Michy Batshuayi and Olivier Giroud don’t look ideal as backup options.

Olivier Giroud may be on his way out this January as ESPN recently named him as a player who could leave Stamford Bridge presented they could sign a replacement.

Arsenal fans may be disappointed to miss out on Moussa Dembele, but the signing maybe doesn’t make sense as an urgent priority as Mikel Arteta already has the likes of Alexandre Lacazette, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and promising Brazilian starlet Gabriel Martinelli to choose from in that area of the pitch.
