Chelsea confirm announcement of French international forward

Chelsea have confirmed the signing of French international attacker Christopher Nkunku from Bundesliga outfit RB Leipzig.

The 25-year-old has put pen to paper on a six-year deal at Stamford Bridge for a fee of approximately $65m and has played 10 times for the French national team.

Blues confirm long-awaited signing of Christopher Nkunku

The news was confirmed earlier today on Chelsea’s official club website, for whom Nkunku said of his move, “I am incredibly happy — a big effort was made to bring me to the club, I wanna show Chelsea supporters what I can do on the pitch.”

Nkunku moved to Leipzig in 2019 from Paris Saint-Germain, with whom he won three Ligue 1 titles. The versatile attacker can play as a number 9 or just behind the striker and is likely to replace the outgoing Kai Havertz and on-loan Joao Felix, who will return to his parent club Atletico Madrid.

Last season, Nkunku provided a fantastic 23 goals in an injury-effected season for the Red Bull-owned club which won the DFB-Pokal and finished the season in third place, qualifying for next season’s Champions League.
