Christopher Nkunku, one of the brightest talents in European soccer, appears to be on his way to Stamford Bridge and Chelsea. The current RB Leipzig forward would join the English side in the summer of 2023.

Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano reports that Chelsea is dropping around $60 million for the French player. However, this is not a necessarily ‘new’ transfer. In September, Bild reported Nkunku already completed a medical with Chelsea. While some outlets denied his medical, it now seems Nkunku was, in fact, preparing for a Chelsea move.

Despite the nearing January transfer window, this is not going to happen after the World Cup. Instead, Nkunku will finish out the season with RB Leipzig before making the switch over to the Premier League. Right now, Leipzig are third in the Bundesliga and are bound for the UEFA Champions League knockout stage. The German club faces Manchester City in the round of 16 in the latter.
