Chelsea owner Todd Boehly is personally attempting an impressive Josko Gvardiol and Christopher Nkunku double deal, according to reports.
The Lowdown: Potter era underway…
The Graham Potter era is well and truly underway after the unceremonious sacking of fan favourite boss Thomas Tuchel.
Looking to get back among the Premier League‘s elite, Chelsea’s new manager has made a fairly solid start to life at Stamford Bridge – remaining unbeaten with a win against Crystal Palace and draw at home to Salzburg in the Champions League.
The Blues take on Serie A giants AC Milan this evening in another big match for Potter, but according to reports, it appears Boehly is fully prepared to back his man with significant investment off the field.
The Latest: Boehly personally pursuing double deal…
As per 90min, the Chelsea owner is personally pursuing a double deal for RB Leipzig stars Christopher Nkunku and Josko Gvardiol.
It is believed that they are currently ‘in talks’ with the Bundesliga side as Boehly tries to convince them to agree to sales ‘immediately’.
Personal terms are also thought to be nearly fully agreed.
The Verdict: Ambitious…
Trying to land both of Leipzig’s key men is a big move and nobody can accuse Boehly of a lack of ambition since taking over the club.
Nkunku currently ranks as their second-best performing regular behind Willi Orban has seriously impressed going forward with six goals in eight league matches already this season (WhoScored).
Indeed, this may well be a very exciting era for Chelsea supporters given Boehly’s serious intent thus far.
