Chelsea close in on Fulham star
Chelsea are hoping to win the race for Fulham playmaker Moussa Dembele this summer in a deal that could be worth up to £10million.
The 24-year-old's stock has risen in the past 12 months with a host of top Premier League clubs said to be keen on the Belgium international.
Spurs, Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea have all been linked with a bid for the forward but fresh reports say the Blues will hope to steal a march and are eyeing a deal with the Cottagers for around £10million.
Dembele is thought to be keen to stay in London and would be interested in a switch to Stamford Bridge where he would link-up with his international team-mate Eden Hazard following his decision to join the European champions earlier in the week.
The former AZ star is highly-rated after some impressive displays for Fulham although his goalscoring record is one concern, having only notched five goals in his two seasons in the Premier League.
