Talksport reports that Chelsea are leading the race to land Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele after his contract expires in June.
"This one has really taken off overnight," Talksport reporter Alex Crook says.
"Chelsea look like they are favourites to sign Ousmane Dembele on a free transfer.
"He’s been letting his contract run down at Barcelona and he would be the first signing of the Todd Boehly era."
This season, Dembele scored two goals and provided 13 assists in 21 appearances for the Catalan side.
