According to a report published by the Evening Standard, Chelsea have cooled their interest in Celtic striker Moussa Dembele.

The reigning Premier League Champions initially displayed interested in the youngster during the summer and were linked with a move this month.

The 21-year old was spectacular for Celtic last season as he scored 32 goals in all competitions to help his side win the domestic treble unbeaten.

He has been unable to reach the same level of form this season and has so far scored eight times and provided three assist from 21 games in all competitions for his side.

Antonio Conte has reportedly cooled interest in the Frenchman and has been put off by his £40 million price tag.

The Blues are now turning their interest onto Monaco star Thomas Lemar and Red Star Belgrade striker Richmond Boakye as they look to improve their forward options this month.
