Lyon striker Moussa Dembele is one of the forward options Chelsea are considering trying to sign in January.

Dembele has scored 25 goals since moving to Ligue 1 from Celtic for £20m 18 months ago.

Olivier Giroud and Michy Batshuayi are likely to leave Chelsea during the transfer window and Frank Lampard has been tracking Dembele for some time.

Sky Sports News has been told Lampard sees similarities between Dembele and former Chelsea forward Didier Drogba.

Dembele enjoyed a successful spell with Celtic after joining the club from Fulham in 2016 under former boss Brendan Rodgers.
