Chelsea are keen on signing Lyon striker Moussa Dembele and could launch a second bid before the close of the January transfer window.
The English Premier League club saw a £34million offer rejected earlier this month but are not willing to give up just yet, according to report.
Michy Batshuayi and Olivier Giroud have both struggled when given chances under manager Frank Lampard this season and with Tammy Abraham assisted off the pitch in the 2-2 draw against Arsenal, Chelsea know an option is urgently needed.
Get French Football News have claimed that Chelsea still have Dembele in their sights and will make another bid during this month’s transfer window.

Will President Aulas stick to his guns against a sale? We shall see.
