Chelsea will sign attacker for a fee of €70 million
Chelsea will sign RB Leipzig forward Christopher Nkunku for a fee of €70m next summer – fans have been told
Graham Potter has reportedly been assured by owner Todd Boehly that he will be given plenty of time to implement his plans for the role.
And that has led to speculation in the media that we have been keen to secure the services of Nkunku after failing to sign the attacker during the summer transfer window – despite numerous offers
Now – According to journalist Ben Jacobs that the club and RB Leipzig have now reached an agreement over Nkunku
As per Jacobs, leaving RB Leipzig in the middle of the season was never the intention of Nkunku and he will join us only at the end of the season.
Christopher Nkunku update. Although Leipzig call a move to Chelsea a "transfer rumour", am told there is now a broad club-to-club agreement in place for summer 2023 worth around €70m. pic.twitter.com/3h9ase5zxO

Fans were a little disappointed to see that they were unable to see Nkunku perform at the World Cup because of that injury he picked up – but he really is a special kind of player.
There is a reason why all the big clubs have been watching him – there is a reason why he will cost so much and that is because he is a player that is good enough for the big time.
So if the reports are true and he will be coming to the club at the end of the season – he will be a world class signing for the club that should make a real difference to our attack.
We just need to give him some time to adapt
