Chelsea have received a boost in their pursuit ofBarcelonaforward Ousmane Dembele after Paris St-Germain pulled out of the race to sign him.

Thomas Tuchel worked with Dembele at Borussia Dortmund before his mammoth 96.8m move to Spain and tried to bring him to Stamford Bridge in January. Now a free agent while he stalls on signing a new contract with Barca, Dembele was also a target for PSG but they are no longer interested, according toSpanish newspaper Sport.

They claim Chelsea have offered the France star a four-year deal with a signing-on fee, and although the terms fall short of Dembeles demands, talks are set to continue.

Chelsea have told Inter Milam to cough up 17m if they want to sign misfit midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

But the Serie A side would prefer to bring the former England international to Milan on a loan deal instead. Thats according toItalian newspaper Gazzetta,who claim Loftus-Cheek is available this summer. Tuchel needs to sell players to boost his transfer kitty and make room for new signings next season.
