Chelsea complete secret medical of €60 million-rated star ahead of transfer next summer

BILD (via Fussball.News) reports that Chelsea have already finished a portion of the medical process for RB Leipzig forward Christopher Nkunku in preparation for signing him next summer.

The Frenchman is eagerly sought after by the Blues, who were also connected to him during the summer transfer window.

In August, he finished a medical exam for the club. He conducted the examination in Frankfurt in front of a Chelsea orthopedist. Recently, the procedure was paid for.

However, This was done to ensure Nkunku’s convenience and to avoid making headlines in England.

The Frenchman then signed a new contract with RB Leipzig, which will expire in 2026 and has a release clause of €60 million. However, that clause will only be activated next summer.

Hence, the Blues are likely to bring Nkunku to Stamford Bridge next summer, with Leipzig unlikely to sell him in the winter transfer window.

The Frenchman has scored 53 goals and provided 48 assists in 147 matches for the German club so far.

The 24-year-old currently plays with Timo Werner, who returned to Leipzig this summer after an underwhelming two-year spell with the Blues. The German joined the west London side in 2020 and contributed 23 goals and 21 assists in 89 matches.

Nkunku will hope to have a better impact at Stamford Bridge than his current teammate.
