19-assist attacker told make Chelsea move – Boehly ready to sanction deal


Former Chelsea star Glen Johnson reckons that Christopher Nkunku should move to Stamford Bridge after it had been claimed that Ted Beohly is ready to splash the cash for the player

It will surely be a very exciting transfer season for the club and the fans as Thomas Tuchel will surely be backed with funds to add to a squad that needs working on

And Tuchel knows that he will need to delve into that transfer kitty and sign players that will add some goals to the squad – as lot of his players struggles in front of goal last season

And that has led to reports in the media which have suggested that we are very much keen on Nkunku – who has just been voted the Bundesliga player of the season.

The 24-year-old had an amazing season last season and netted 35-goals while adding 19-assists as Leipzig finished fourth in the table – and there are alot of clubs keen on a possible deal.

Leipzig are desperate to keep Nkunku and they’ve set a prohibitively high asking price of £100million in order to let the forward leave – But reports have claimed that the club are willing to meet Leipzig’s asking price as they fear the competition for his signature will be even greater next summer.

Now – amid all the speculation – ex-Chelsea full back Johnson spoke to bettingodds.com about the highly-rated midfielder – and encouraged him to make the move to Stamford Bridge this summer

Johnson said: “I believe Chelsea is a more realistic destination than Manchester United if both clubs are genuinely interested.

“A player going to a top team that’s had a really good season will be looking for Champions League football… I definitely think that’s where these sorts of players look first.

“If he was to leave RB Leipzig, then I think Chelsea could be a better fit.”
