Chelsea ‘re-open talks with Lyon over £45m Moussa Dembele’ as Edinson Cavani gets set for Atletico Madrid
Chelsea are reportedly back in the conversation for Lyon striker Moussa Dembele as they look set to miss out on Edinson Cavani.
Frank Lampard is desperate to sign a striker before the close of the January transfer window next week.
And with Cavani expected to snub Stamford Bridge, favouring a move to Atletico Madrid instead, Chelsea have set their sights on Dembele, according to The Sun.

Lampard wants more forward options to challenge Tammy Abraham as the Blues fight for a top four finish.
Demebele has scored 13 goals in 28 appearances for the Ligue 1 side this season but will only become available for a price of £45million.
It throws further uncertainty over the future of Olivier Giroud, who has made just seven appearances under Lampard this season.
