Agreement reached: Chelsea strikes a deal around €60M for a strike with 17 goals this season

The World Cup is in full swing, and Chelsea is already planning for the January transfer window. The Blues have had an inconsistent season so far, and they are looking to strengthen their squad in the coming window.

Graham Potter needs to address the attacking line, and the addition of a striker looks promising. Nonetheless, Chelsea has long been interested in RB Leipzig forward Christopher Nkunku, who has 17 goals for the club. Chelsea are closing in on a deal for Christopher Nkunku on both the player and club sides, according to football transfer guru Fabrizio Romano.

As previously reported in September, the medical agreement was completed in collaboration with Chelsea personnel, and there is currently a verbal agreement in place with RB Leipzig for more than a €60 million clause, a package worth close to €70 million, but with easier payment terms.

A long-term agreement was already reached on the player's side, as an agreement had been in the works for some time and is now in place. All parties are still waiting for contracts to be signed before calling the deal done and sealed, but it has been verbally agreed upon. Important point: the agreement is for June 23, not January, as it currently stands.
