Lyon striker, Moussa Dembele, has reportedly agreed personal terms in a deal to take him to English Premier League side, Chelsea in the January transfer window.
The development was revealed by respected football expert, Ian McGarry.
McGarry while speaking with the Transfer Window Podcast said, “My information is that Chelsea have fairly agreed a contract, verbally that is, with Dembele and his representatives in terms of the player’s wages, bonuses etc, and that it remains for the club to agree the fee, fee structure and/or any add ons etc with Jean Michel-Aulas of Lyon”.
“So I think they are ahead in this but Manchester United need goals, almost everyone in the Premier League needs to buy goals in January, that seems to be the trend always every time this window opens, that everyone is looking for a striker.”
Naija News had earlier reported that Chelsea is set to swap its striker, Olivier Giroud and cash for the Lyon striker.
This is coming days after the president of Lyon, Jean-Michel Aulas noted that Dembele was not for sale this month.
