If Maurizio Sarri gets what he wants in terms of signings this window, Chelsea could once again look like a threat for the top four as long as they keep their stars as well.
So far the Italian has only brought in Jorginho, one of his former players during his stint with Napoli. Jorginho will add even more quality to Chelsea’s midfield and defensively alongside N’Golo Kante, in what could be the making of a formidable partnership.
As Sarri and everyone else knows though, one signing would be enough to transform Chelsea back into a top four side but the added addition of Moussa Dembele could be a big help in their push for Champions League football.
Dembele (who is valued at £5.4 million on Transfermarkt) has already begun his campaign with Celtic in scintillating form, scoring 2 goals in his 2 Champions League qualifying appearances.
The Frenchman has continued to look like a complete bargain since moving to Celtic from Fulham for £2 million, a fee that would now be considerably higher for Moussa Dembele, as last season he found the back of the net 16 times in all competitions.
At 22, Dembele has already been successful in the Championship and now in the Scottish Premiership with Celtic, so a big move to a team like Chelsea would show how far he’s come in a short space of time. Especially with the uncertainty surrounding Michy Batshuayi’s future, recruiting Moussa Dembele as a replacement would be top business as they are both young goal-scorers and either way, Chelsea would be getting a good deal.
Chelsea will look to add significant firepower to their squad before the window shuts on the 9th of August and Moussa Dembele has the potential to be a top acquisition for the Blues, should they consider the Celtic man.
