Chelsea ‘closing-in’ on 16-goal striker who Tottenham are desperate to sign

dembele1234Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern have been winding up their Tottenham Hotspur counterparts today, after a piece of news suggested the Blues had stolen a march in the race for a quality striker.

The Mail¬†states Chelsea are closing in on the signature of Fulham’s young striker Moussa Dembele, who has scored 16-goals this season for the Championship club and was courted by Tottenham Hotspur in January.

19-year-old Dembele is out of contract with The Cottagers in the summer and has made it clear he will not pen a new deal, with it likely the talented striker will make the jump to a Premier League club- although it’s likely he’ll spend next year out on-loan.

Whilst Spurs were previously considered to be the frontrunners in the chase for the teenager’s signature, Chelsea have made their move and talks are said to be progressing well.¬†Although no transfer fee would be required, Fulham would be due a compensation and the figure would be set by a tribunal.

Chelsea, of course, need wholesale changes this summer and their strike-force is likely to undergo wholesale changes, with Loic Remy expected to be sold, Alexandre Pato and Radamel Falcao seeing their loan spells draw to a close and Diego Costa attracting European interest.

Which move would be better for Dembele, Chelsea or Spurs? Let us know in the comments below!
