Initial reports suggested that the Blues were 'especially' interested in Dembele and have been 'following him closely'.

It was believed that Tuchel was 'insistent' that Chelsea sign the player due to their positive relationship at Dortmund together.

When asked about signing Dembele for Chelsea, Tuchel refused to comment but insisted that the French international is a 'very good' player.

“He is in a situation (at Barcelona), I have no idea why or what the situation and detail is. I know how I feel about it when it’s about my players so it is better not to talk.” he said.
