Chelsea willing to pay £34m for Dembele but Lyon wouldn't let go

English Premier League club Chelsea are willing to pay £34m for the signature of Moussa Dembele.

The striker is one of the options Chelsea are weighing up in the January transfer window but Lyon is confident of keeping hold of their striker till at least the summer, according to Sky Sports.

"Olympique Lyonnais has taken note of certain information relayed by the media suggesting that Moussa Dembele could interest other clubs during this transfer window," Lyon said in a statement on Thursday.

"We would like to reaffirm its wish, as in the summer of 2019, to keep Moussa Dembele.

"The club has full confidence in Moussa and counts in particular on him to build a successful team for the seasons to come."

The 23-year-old has scored 30 goals since moving to Ligue 1 from Celtic for £20m 18 months ago.
