Confirm! Chelsea welcomes Nkunku at a great price
Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano recently confirmed that Chelsea is about to complete the Christopher Nkunku deal from RB Leipzig.
In the summer of 2022, Chelsea have made quality additions in the transfer market with Raheem Sterling, Kalidou Koulibaly, Wesley Fofana or Marc Cucurella. However, things did not go as planned. Coach Thomas Tuchel was soon sacked after only 7 games leading the Blues since the beginning of the season.
Coach Graham Potter was appointed to the hot seat at Stamford Bridge and was fully supported by co-owner Todd Boehly. It is widely reported that the Blues have reached an agreement with RB Leipzig striker Christopher Nkunku since the summer.
Even the medical examination with the German player has been completed and the parties are just waiting for the announcement. Now, reputable transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has an update on this deal.
The Italian journalist said: “Chelsea is close to closing the deal for Christopher Nkunku. The medical examination was carried out as reported in September, the agreement with RB Leipzig, on the terms of which it costs more than 60 million euros.
The long-term agreement will take effect from June 2023. Everything is nearing completion, then HERE WE GO.”
Some information said that Chelsea can completely welcome Nkunku in January, if this striker does not suffer a serious injury when preparing with the French national team for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
