Raheem Sterling is a higher priority target than Ousmane Dembele, who may now sign at Barca

Chelsea are more keen on Raheem Sterling than Ousmane Dembele, according to reports from Ben Jacobs of CBS Sports.

He claims the club are more focused on the Man City winger – who has one year of contract left – than on Dembele, who is without a club, albeit with a deal on the table to stay at Barcelona.

He has to make up his mind soon, and it sounds like that means Chelsea’s chase narrows down to Sterling. Dembele can’t hold out forever without signing somewhere.

Chelsea won’t make an offer to him until they know if they’re getting Sterling. That’s how this dance goes, with Dembele now under pressure from Barca to sign.

Does he try to wait out Chelsea’s interest in Sterling, or just bite the bullet and stay put in Catalonia? Does he wait around and see who else becomes interested? We may know in a matter of weeks.
