Chelsea: Fabrizio Romano shares big Nkunku update

Chelsea: Fabrizio Romano shares big Nkunku update - Chelsea News

Reliable transfer journalist Fabrizio Romano has shared a big Chelsea transfer update on their pursuit of RB Leipzig star Christopher Nkunku.

The Lowdown: Potter backed…

The Blues are appearing to back their new manager Graham Potter with club owner Todd Boehly reportedly holding serious ambition behind-the-scenes.

Claims surfaced this week of the Stamford Bridge’s side real intent as 90min shared reports of a possible ‘double deal’ for both Nkunku and Josko Gvardiol from Leipzig.

It was stated that talks are ongoing over moves for both players and Boehly is the personal driving force behind this exciting swoop.

Now, a very reliable source in Romano has shared a promising update on Chelsea’s pursuit of Nkunku.

The Latest: Romano shares Nkunku update…

Writing via his CaughtOffside substack for subscribers, the Italian says Chelsea and Boehly by extension have ‘moved fast’ for the forward to get ahead of Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and Man United.

Romano claims Potter’s side are ‘more than leading the race’ for Nkunku’s signature as they enter pole position for his signing.

The fee will allegedly be somewhere over the €60m (£53m) mark.

The Verdict: Exciting…

Called a ‘world class player‘ by ex-Leipzig assistant coach Achim Beierlorzer, Nkunku’s numbers definitely back this up.

As per WhoScored, the 24-year-old has already bagged six goals in eight Bundesliga appearances this season whilst also ranking in their top three for shots at goal and key passes made per 90.

Still fairly young and a proven threat, £53 million could certainly be considered a bargain.
