Chelsea are reportedly set to try and break Lyon’s resolve by offering £40million plus Olivier Giroud in a bid to sign Moussa Dembele.

Former Celtic striker Dembele has attracted the attention of Chelsea , Manchester United and Arsenal after scoring 10 goals in 18 Ligue 1 appearances so far.

But Lyon issued a statement last week insisting they have no plans to sell Dembele, who is contracted to the club until 2023.

So Chelsea are planning to offer Giroud to try and tempt Lyon, according to The Sun – believing Dembele himself is keen on a move to Stamford Bridge.
