Report: Chelsea have deal in place to sign Nkunku

The Athletic claims that Chelsea have agreed terms to sign Christopher Nkunku from RB Leipzig in 2023.
Christopher Nkunku penned a new deal in June, extending his contract with Leipzig until 2026. However, much suggests that this will be his last season at the Bundesliga club.

Bild reported last week that the 24-year-old completed a medical with Chelsea in the summer ahead of a possible move to London in the future.

The Athletic now goes a step further and reports that Chelsea have a deal in place to sign Nkunku for a fee in excess of his reported €60 million release clause next summer.

Nkunku joined Leipzig from Paris Saint-Germain in 2019. He has scored 55 goals and provided 48 assists in 148 games for the club.
