Ousmane Dembele is ready to join Chelsea from Barcelona this summer but are seeking reassurances from Thomas Tuchel before agreeing to a move.

The France international’s career was resurrected by Xavi after he was called up to the Camp Nou midway through last season.

Dembele’s last five years at Barcelona were marred by a series of disciplinary offenses and a lack of fitness but he recently returned to the form that convinced the club to play £117m for him in 2017.

However, Barcelona will make one last attempt to convince the 25-year-old to sign a new contract The Sun, Dembele have already eyed a move to Stamford Bridge.

With the club’s ownership settled, Tuchel is hoping to put together a squad capable of rivaling Liverpool and Manchester City.

Tuchel previously worked with Dembele at Borussia Dortmund and believes the winger can support his quest to win the Premier League.

Dembele is keen to reunite with his former manager but wants to be sure he is given a key first-team role and is unwilling to sit on the bench like he has been for much of his Barcelona career has done.

The former Rennes star appeared to downplay the possibility of him joining the Blues in footage that surfaced on social media earlier this weekend, telling a fan he is “doing fine” in Barcelona and will stay.

A video that has surfaced on social media shows a fan interacting with Dembele as they sit in their cars at a traffic light.

‘Are you staying in Barcelona?’ asks the fan, and Dembele replies: “Yes.”

Spanish outlet Sport say the supporter then specifically asks about Chelsea and if Dembele would like to work with Tuchel at Stamford Bridge, to which he replies: “I’m fine at Barcelona.”

Chelsea also retain an interest in City winger Raheem Sterling and will seek a move for the England international once Romelu Lukaku’s future is settled.

Tuchel is also reportedly ready to listen to offers for Hakim Ziyech while the futures of teammates Timo Werner, Christian Pulisic and Callum Hudson-Odoi remain uncertain.
