Fulham transfer news: Mousa Dembele is ready to leave Craven Cottage

Fulham star Mousa Dembele is ready to quit the Whites and move to fierce rivals Chelsea, where he can replace Frank Lampard, according to his agent.

The 24-year-old Belgian has attracted the attention of the Blues as well as Manchester United after impressing in the last two years at Craven Cottage.

“It fits Mousa’s ambitions perfectly to become the replacement for someone like Frank Lampard one day, just as playing in the Champions League does as well,” agent Rodger Linse is quoted as saying by the Daily Mail.
