The Blues are reportedly closing in on Ousmane Dembele, with the Frenchman set to become the first signing of the Boehly era.
Dembele, 25, is available on a free transfer after snubbing multiple offers from Barcelona.

Chelsea pushed hard to sign Sevilla defender Jules Kounde last summer, although the LaLiga side held firm.
This summer, however, the Frenchman is set to be up for grabs, despite his defensive partner Diego Carlos having already ditched Seville for Aston Villa.
SunSport recently revealed that Kounde is desperate to join Chelsea this summer – and can fill the void left by Rudiger and Christensen’s departures.

Former PSG academy kid Nkunku enjoyed a stunning season at RB Leipzig, scoring 34 goals and laying on 20 assists from attacking midfield.
The 24-year-old will cost a pretty penny, having been rated at £84million in some quarters.

Chelsea are interested in signing Brighton wing-back Marc Cucurella.
The Spaniard could be the perfect Alonso replacement, although the Blues will have to battle it out with Man City and Spurs to sign him.
