Chelsea succeeded in recruiting the Bundesliga MVP.
European football expert reporter Fabrizio Romano said on the 17th (Korean time) through his personal social network service (SNS), “Chelsea has succeeded in signing Christopher Nkunku (RB Leipzig, 25). The contract process is 100% complete. 2023 He plans to join in July 2018.”
Nkunku is a proven resource in the German Bundesliga. He stood out as a world-class striker with 35 goals and 20 assists in 52 games last season. He scored a hat-trick against Manchester City in the UEFA Champions League (UCL) match. He was named the 2022 German Bundesliga MVP and drew attention from the European football world.
Chelsea, in an urgent need to sign a striker, made a bold decision. According to a report by the British media’Daily Mail’ in the past, Chelsea invested 52.8 million pounds (approximately 84.1 billion won) in transfer fees for Nkunku. Following the departure of Timo Werner (26) to Leipzig, the long-term injury of Armando Broya (21) left a huge gap in the attacking line.
It is also unclear whether Romelu Lukaku (29), who moved on loan to Inter Milan, will return. Kai Havertz (22) is struggling at the forefront. The performance of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (33), who was hastily recruited, also received a failing grade. 스포츠토토
Meanwhile, Nkunku fell in love with the new owner. According to the media, Chelsea owner Todd Bailey is known to have made a bold decision to sign Nkunku.
Even Nkunku is a multiplayer player who can play in a variety of positions. ‘Daily Mail’ analyzed, “Nkunku is capable of both a central striker and a slow striker. He can also play as an attacking midfielder. This is why he captured the heart of Boelli’s owner.” According to the media, Chelsea have already completed Nkunku’s medical test in September.
However, the transfer is expected to take place next summer. Reporter Romano explained, “Nkunku will wear Chelsea clothes in July of the following year. The contract has been signed.”
