Chelsea's hopes of signing Lyon striker Moussa Dembele have hit a significant stumbling block, with the French club's president, Jean-Michel Aulas, adamant he will not be allowed to leave this month.

Dembele was identified as the ideal signing and Chelsea already have a verbal agreement in place with the 23-year-old - though negotiating a fee with Lyon is proving far more difficult.

We already made this issue clear in August,' said Aulas on Tuesday evening when asked about Dembele.

'He is a player I know, and a player that the club know,' said the Chelsea boss.
