Christopher Nkunku Has A Pre-contract Agreement With Chelsea

RB Leipzig forward Christopher Nkunku has signed a pre-contract agreement with Chelsea.

The Premier League side are reportedly paying the Bundesliga side a price in excess of the 24-year-old’s €60 million release clause.

Chelsea are spending a higher figure to secure the signing of the France international in advance. The Frenchman emerged as one of PSG’s most promising academy players, but given the quality of the club’s attack, he never got the minutes needed to continue to develop.

At RB Leipzig, Nkunku has become one of the most exciting attacking players in Europe. Last season, he scored 35 goals and registered 20 assists in 52 games. He has already hit the ground running this season with 6 goals in 11 games.

Chelsea co-owners Todd Boehly and Behdad Eghbali are continuing to build both on and off the field at Stamford Bridge and are looking to appoint a new sporting director.
