Tuchel key as Chelsea favourites to land Barcelona attacker Dembele

Chelsea remain favourites to sign Barcelona attacker Ousmane Dembele.

Marca says Chelsea are best-placed to sign Dembele on a free transfer this summer.

That's because Thomas Tuchel is reportedly pushing hard for the Barcelona star.

Dembele is edging ever closer to leaving the Nou Camp when his deal expires.

Xavi Hernandez made a late play to keep the Frenchman this week with a new contract offer.

But it's believed to be too little, too late.

And Dembele is now set for a fresh start elsewhere.
