Chelsea are in talks with Barcelona attacker Ousmane Dembele.

Dembele's relationship with the club has always been fractious but hit a new low recently when he publicly released a statement accusing them of trying to blackmail him into signing a new contract.

Barcelona are trying to secure new deals for stars on reduced terms initially with more money coming in the back-end of the contract, allowing them to free up funds to sign players at the moment.

But Dembele and his agent have refused to play ball, making it seem increasingly likely that he will leave.

Spanish journalist Alfredo Martinez said: "Everything indicates that Chelsea is the club that is negotiating and that they may even have something agreed with Dembele."
