Chelsea are plotting a deadline move for Celtic striker Moussa Dembele.
The striker is regarded as one of the best youngsters in Europe due to his impressive displays for the Scottish giants, scoring 20 goals in the first half of the season.
There have been speculations about his future with the likes of Manchester City and Chelsea being his main suitors, the Blues have now stepped up their interest in the 20-year-old and could complete a deal before the end of the transfer window.
Reports in the Metro claim that Dembele could leave Celtic for £30million and Chelsea have tabled a figure around the fee.
It is beleived that Antonio Conte does not trust the abilities of Michy Batshuayi and is pressing for cover for Diego Costa.
In related news, Bournemouth are reportedly plotting a shock bid to sign Nathan Ake on deadline day after his initial move from the club earlier this month.
Ake was recalled from his loan move with the Cherries but has not been able to break into the starting line-up and could fancy a move back to the Vitality stadium where he shined immensely.
However, reports in the Daily Mail have it that the possibility of a deal is if Chelsea sign defender before the end of the current transfer window.
