Chelsea to face competition for Dembele services

According to reports, reigning English champions Chelsea will be facing stiff competition from local rivals West Ham United over the services of Belgium international, Mousa Dembele. The former Fulham midfielder is attracting a lot of interest from Jose Mourinho’s side but the Blues have now been made aware that they will face serious competition from the Hammers in order to acquire the services of the Tottenham Hotspur man.

The Hammers manager, Slaven Bilic is a big fan of the midfielder and is confident that Dembele will not turn down the offer of playing at a club that is likely to field a very strong squad for the 2015/16 campaign.

Moreover, Chelsea might not be able to guarantee the Belgian regular game time with their manager most possibly looking at the player as a good back up option to Nemanja Matic – ┬ásomething that could change the whole complexion of this transfer war.
