The Daily Telegraph’s Matt Law, David Ornstein, and the well-known Fabrizio Romano all reported last week that Nkunku had a private medical exam in Frankfurt to help ease his transfer to Chelsea during the forthcoming summer 2023 transfer window. In order to secure his services, the Blues have now agreed to a pre-contract with the player and have informed RB Leipzig that they are willing to pay far more than the Frenchman’s release clause (currently set at €60 million).

Chelsea are currently in a period of transition, and the new owners wanted to lock down and secure these deals in front of their rivals, but they were unable to do so prior to the ownership changing hands on May 30th. Having said that, we now see why Chelsea moved so quickly to sign him, but we are still unsure of what convinced them that he was the right choice. Before we begin, let’s briefly review this prospective new Chelsea player’s earlier career.

I can see why a Chelsea supporter might not be overly enthusiastic. Christian Pulisic from Dortmund, Timo Werner from RB Leipzig, and Kai Havertz from Bayer Leverkusen, their most recent three additions from the German Bundesliga, haven’t lived up to expectations. Nkunku, however, clearly differs from these other three players in terms of style of play.

In contrast to the football played under former manager Thomas Tuchel, Graham Potter is noted for playing a very optimistic brand of the game.
