Chelsea are one of the clubs who want to sign Mousa Dembele from Celtic this summer, according to journalist Kaveh Solhekol.

The Sky Sports News HQ reporter has taken to Twitter to claim that both Chelsea and West Ham are interested in signing the 20-year-old forward this summer after he scored 32 goals in all competitions last summer.

Chelsea are believed to be on the lookout for a new striker this summer, with Diego Costa’s future still unclear and following the Blues’ failed pursuit of Romelu Lukaku.

And Solhekol claims that the west London side are pondering a move to sign the highly-rated Dembele from Celtic.

Solhekol tweeted on Monday morning: “Marseille want to sign Celtic striker Moussa Dembele. He’s also an option for West Ham and Chelsea. Scored 32 times last season.”

Chelsea confirmed their second signing of the summer on Sunday afternoon when they announced a deal to sign defender Antonio Rudiger from Roma.

The Blues, however, are still thought to be on the lookout for a number of other players this summer as Antonio Conte prepares for his second season in charge at the club.

The west London side are gearing up for a return to the Champions League next season after the Blues won the title in Conte’s first campaign at Stamford Bridge.
