An ex-Stamford Bridge favorite thinks that the Frenchman has all the attributes to achieve success at Stamford Bridge below Frank Lampard's tutelage.

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has urged Chelsea to undertake and sign Lyon striker Moussa Dembele within the January transfer window.

The Blues were unable to usher in any new players over the summer thanks to a FIFA-imposed transfer ban, however, when seeing those sanctions raised in December, Frank Lampard is liberated to create changes to his squad within the winter market.

Fulham 's books within the Championship, and thinks he would be a "magnificent signing" for Chelsea if a deal may be pushed over the road this month.

"Obviously Tammy Abraham is doing rather well however he's the sole one extremely who is doing rather well. Batshuayi isn't creating a difference.

Giroud, I think, he doesn't extremely fit in with their plans.

"They got to get a striker in.

Moussa Dembele would be an impressive signing for Chelsea. I do know Moussa quite well. I faced him when I was a QPR manager, he vies ever well and killed my defense.

"He has developed himself very well. He visited Celtic and vie at an enormous club where the atmosphere and the pressure are there of winning. you have got to win each match.

"Having already tasted that and knowledgeable that pressure, and if Chelsea buys him, he's acquainted with that.

"When you're at Chelsea, you have got to be able to handle the pressure of winning things and he has shown at Celtic he will do this. additional significantly, he's a killer. he's a goalscorer. He lives for goals.

"He scores goals in numerous ways that, together with his head, together with his feet, left and right. he's fast, he's robust, he will still improve, he's still very young."

Hasselbaink went on to express his belief that Lampard is capable of turning Dembele into a fair higher player whereas demand that Abraham cannot shoulder Chelsea's goalscoring burden on his own.

"Frank can improve him [Dembele] with Jody Morris, in his combination play, that may be higher and improved," Hasselbaink added.

"But what you can’t teach a player is being somewhere at the proper time, and he has that plenty. Tammy has that as well, however at an enormous club, you have got to possess a handful of strikers who are really expert.

You need competition."
