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.
