• French winger Ousmane Dembele will be out of contract next summer and a host of clubs have been linked with him. 

Dembele has been battling recurring injuries since he moved to Barcelona and he might want to leave the club next summer.

Liverpool, Manchester City, and Chelsea have been linked with the Frenchman, but out of the three clubs linked with him, Chelsea might have a better chance of signing him.

Reason Why Dembele Could Choose Chelsea.

Dembele has previously stated how much he enjoyed his time under Thomas Tuchel. Tuchel was Dembele`s coach at Dortmund in the 2016/17 season. That season under Tuchel is still Dembele`s most successful campaign individually. He registered 10 goals and 22 assists under Tuchel and his performance that season earned him a mega move to Barcelona.

“With Thomas Tuchel, I played a bit more on the right side at the beginning of the season and then I was moved more centrally, in the number 10 position, sometimes, even in the midfield three.  it would have been hard to leave Dortmund if Tuchel stayed” “Thomas convinced me, he is my favorite manager.”

Thomas Tuchel has also holds the Barcelona man in high regard. 

“Ousmane is an incredible player, he’s really talented. I could watch his amazing skills in every training session.

“He’s also a great human being. He’s a little crazy. He’s a really nice boy but a little crazy. He loves to laugh but can also have very serious conversations. It’s never boring with him.

It is very clear that both the player and manager enjoyed working together. If Chelsea make a move for Dembele during the January or summer transfer window, Tuchel will be on hand to convince him to join Chelsea.
