Chelsea are one of three clubs that could have a chance of signing Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele, according to Don Balon (via TeamTalk).

The French international only signed for Barca in the summer for €105million, but the club are said to be having second thoughts about the player already.

Dembele as had a number of niggling injuries that have disrupted his settling in period at the La Liga side, but Don Balon suggest that there is another reason why Barcelona want to get rid of the Frenchman so quickly.

Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann is a priority target for the club, and they need to finance a move for the 26 year old by selling players.

It has been suggested that Dembele could join Atletico but it’s likely the player’s €150m (£132m) asking price would be far out of the Madrid club’s price range. Instead, Barca will consider asking Chelsea and Manchester United if they are interested.

Don Balon believe the Blues would be the most interested, although any attempt to sign Dembele would likely only happen if they sell Eden Hazard to Real Madrid in the summer.
