Having found back of the net 42 times from 79 games since August 2018, French forward is regarded as one of Lyon’s vital player- a status which has led to the French outfit turning down previous bids for his services.
That stance resulted in the Blues missing out on the 23-year-old in the winter transfer window as they failed to strengthen their attacking options.
However, according to the reports, Lyon are ready to encourage the West London club to make another approach for the ex-Celtic man, while Manchester United also considered him as a replacement for injured Marcus Rashford.
With Dembele still having over three years left on his current deal, Ligue 1 giants Lyon are likely to demand a free around £40m for the 23-year-old forward.
Manchester United have also been rumoured with a bid for Dembele when the transfer window will be re-opened in the summer and Frenchman’s compatriot Houssem Aouar who has been also tipped to depart from the French giants after the season ends.
