Chelsea drew links to Ousmane Dembele whose contract with Barcelona ends in another year.
He has publicly noted Thomas Tuchel as the best coach he has worked with.
It was under the current Chelsea boss that Dembele found his wings at Dortmund and earned himself a lucrative move to Camp Nou. Unfortunately, he could not quite meet standards at Barca and could be on his way out this summer. Chelsea is as good a destination as any for a player of his calibre and future potential.
Alan Hudson thinks otherwise. He believes there are far greater talents in the market for Chelsea to pursue. He said, “I think Roman and Tuchel should get Harry Kane.
“They should threaten to throw him overboard to the sharks unless he joins Chelsea! That’s how good Harry is, and there wouldn’t be any problem settling in from north to west London.
“The problem with the English game is we want to bring overseas players in, but we have great talents on our own doorstep.
“Jack Grealish, James Maddison, Harvey Barnes (would be better than Dembele). And had Harry Kane been playing yesterday for Chelsea we would not have been biting our nails in the final ten minutes.”
