Chelsea close to finalizing Nkunku deal

In a transfer saga that has gone on for a while, Chelsea Football Club are seemingly close to agreeing to a deal for sensational forward; Christopher Nkunku and hope to get his signature. Nkunku who plays for RB Leipzig in the Bundesliga; which is Germany’s top-flight league, has been on the radar of many big clubs in Europe, with clubs like Chelsea FC, AC Millan, Manchester United, and Barcelona all showing interest and looking to strengthen their attacks.

As the 2022/23 season has already begun, he will be fully focused on performing for his club and scoring more goals for them, which is due to the closing of the transfer window that cannot see him move to any other club till January 2023.

Of course, many fans have already been excited by the beginning of the 2022/23 campaign, as it has brought a number of exciting fixtures across Europe’s top leagues that fans have been able to bet when they visit, as they are able to find a variety of reliable betting sites without licenses that can offer them a top experience.

Nkunku, who came through the youth system at Paris Saint-Germain before joining Leipzig in 2019, has already made a name for himself as one of the most promising forwards in Europe. Coupled with his goal-scoring ability, Nkunku is a man full of tricks, which he often displays in matches with his speed and quick touches. The 24-year-old forward broke into the spotlight through an explosive performance in the 2021/22 campaign, where he shone both in the domestic league he played in and in the Champions League. In the Bundesliga, he played 34 games where he scored 20 times and provided 13 assists. In the Champions League, Nkunku played in 6 games and scored 7 goals, a world-class goal ratio in Europe’s top club competition.

Even after his side was disappointingly eliminated from the Champions League in the group stages, he still went on to score 4 goals in 6 matches in the Europa League, proving his goal-scoring prowess in multiple competitions. Nkunku has also made 8 senior appearances for his country, France.

Although Christopher Nkunku’s contract with RB Leipzig runs till 2026, Chelsea looks to trigger his release clause, which has a value of roughly £53 million, and he could transfer to the Stamford Bridge outfit from Germany. Given the competition from other elite teams, Chelsea is rumored to be willing to pay more than that sum to sign the 24-year-old France international who has already scored seven goals in nine Bundesliga games this season.

However, on the basis of personal terms, it is believed per numerous reports that Nkunku has already signed the personal agreement contract offered to him by Chelsea Football club, which is a giant leap in signing the forward. Even before the club’s new owners took control, Chelsea had made it clear that they were interested in the 24-year-old in the long term. Todd Boehly has now taken early action to cut to the front of the line for his signature.

In new reports, it has been confirmed that Chelsea carried out a routine medical evaluation for Nkunku just before the end of the transfer window. The medical evaluation is believed to have gone very well, which is something Chelsea fans are happy about, as it signifies a near end to the transfer saga.
