RB Leipzig confirms the major move of Nkunku to Chelsea, as the Blues wait to announce the signing. Although, being in the middle of the season Chelsea looks forward to their new signing. Todd Boehly have acted quickly and efficiently to complete the groundwork of signing the French player for one of the most exciting transfers of the season. The Frenchman is expected to join Chelsea in 2023 for around £52.8m. Chelsea have struggled in recent times under the new manager Graham Potter with zero wins in the Premier League and three losses in Europe.
Chelsea to wait for the announcement of the RB Leipzig player
According to Sport Bild in Germany Chelsea is ‘already prepared’ though they are still waiting on the announcement. It was revealed that the Frenchman had already completed his precautionary medical and due diligence over the summer. Nkunku had already signed a contract with RB Leipzig earlier this summer but it is believed that it was more of a precaution by Leipzig than the player. The 24-year-old is able to play on the wing, as a No.10 and a striker, and stole the headlines in Bundesliga the last term with 35 goals and assists in 34 matches. Chelsea won’t be affected by the move of RB Leipzig director of football Oliver Mintzlaff as the Blues continue to press for a deal to secure star attacker Christopher Nkunku.
If all of these transpire without a glitch then Chelsea fans are in for an exciting 2023 season as Potter looks to rebuild the clubs internal structure and fundamental vision. Potter is still working with the same set of attackers that Thomas Tuchel failed to get the best out of. The new manager will look forward to changing things up in the team.
