Barcelona striker Ousmane Dembele set to choose Chelsea over Paris Saint-Germain – Paper Round

Dembele chooses Chelsea

Ousmane Dembele has made up his mind on his next club, according to The Mirror. The France international can leave on a free transfer from Barcelona this summer when his contract expires, and he is being pursued by both Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain. The chance to work with his former Borussia Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel decided.

Paper Round’s point of view: Dembele has never had a good relationship with the Barcelona hierarchy and has a reputation for being undisciplined and lacking in fitness. If he knows and respects Tuchel, and vice versa, then maybe the two can trust each other and get the winger back to his best form, and show why Barcelona spent so much money on him.

Newcastle step up efforts for Botman

The Telegraph are reporting that Newcastle are moving to another defensive player after signing Matt Targett on a permanent £15million deal from Aston Villa. Next up is their longtime target Sven Botman from Lille. The 22-year-old Dutch international is valued at around €40million and the north-east club could make another attempt to sign him after failing in January.

Paper Round’s point of view: Botman has huge potential after impressing for a few seasons with the French side but given his talent, he will surely want to move to a bigger club. In the past, Newcastle wouldn’t have been in contention for such a move, but given the huge financial backing they have from Saudi Arabia, this is the kind of long-term signing they should make. .

Bayern reject Mane’s offer

The Sun reports that Bayern Munich have made offers so much lower than Liverpool’s valuation of striker Sadio Mane of £42.5m that they will not yet have face-to-face talks with the German club. . Bayern have offered a sum that will only reach £30m if they manage to win three Champions Leagues in a row, with an initial transfer fee of just £23.5m for the 30 year old striker.

Paper Round’s point of view: Bayern are a conservatively run club, financially speaking, but it seems like a waste of time to offer essentially half of what Liverpool want, given that the player is under contract for another year and Jurgen’s side Klopp is not under financial pressure. Considering they are set to lose Robert Lewandowski in similar circumstances, they should be more reasonable.

Lacazette ready for return to Lyon

The Daily Mail took stock of the future of Alexandre Lacazette. The 31-year-old former French international is out of contract at Arsenal and is set to return to Ligue 1 on a free transfer to Lyon. The striker left Lyon to join Arsenal and as his contribution to the team has faded over the years he looked set to leave, and he will now return to bring his experience to a club facing a rebuild.

Paper Round’s point of view: Over the years Lacazette has rarely been brilliant, but he has been a reliable performer. The contrast with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s exit to Arsenal shows why he was valued even at times when his form dipped. Now that Eddie Nketiah looks set to stay at the Emirates, Arsenal will be able to focus on buying just one new striker.
