Premier League side Chelsea have made an opening bid to sign Lyon striker Moussa Dembélé, according to sources contacted by Get French Football News.
The news comes after Lyon released a statement earlier this afternoon, in which they had the following to say:
“We are reaffirming our desire to keep Moussa Dembélé. The club has complete confidence in Moussa and we count on him as we build a powerful team for the seasons to come.”
Sources contacted by Get French Football News refused to comment further on the nature of the bid, whether or not Lyon are inclined to negotiate and whether or not the player is interested in making the move this month.
