Boehly met with club management to talk about bringing ‘world-class’ £52m attacker to Chelsea

On his YouTube channel, Fabrizio Romano said that Todd Boehly had a meeting with the executives of RB Leipzig to explore the possibility of signing Christopher Nkunku.

Earlier in the transfer season, the Blues were quite interested in the Frenchman, but they didn’t make a formal bid because of the asking price established by the Bundesliga team.

The 24-year-old enjoyed an outstanding season on both the domestic and European fronts, producing more goals and assists overall than he did in appearances.

Leipzig naturally wanted to keep him on their books as a result, and the two parties reached an agreement on a new deal.

The £52 million release clause the German team included into the deal, according to Romano, might pique the Blues’ interest as early as next summer. However, this new contract is likely to limit any movements for the time being.

He reported: “Directors of RB Leipzig and Chelsea met one again. Todd Boehly covered a wide range of topics during this meeting. Nkunku is highly regarded by Chelsea, but he just extended his contract at Leipzig, making it appear extremely unlikely that he would get the opportunity to depart this summer. With a release clause in his contract, probably next summer.
A past coach has referred to the forward as “world-class,” and since his spectacular ascent to fame, he has consistently pushed for a starting spot for the France national team.

The club might profit from making Nkunku their top priority acquisition when the 2019–2020 season concludes because the Romelu Lukaku problem still has to be resolved and a straight successor hasn’t been found. He’s nearly guaranteed to draw attention from Europe’s top teams.

The bulk of Thomas Tuchel’s current forward choices lack the potential to be a consistent goalscorer, making his adaptability to play anywhere in the front line the ideal target for his style of play.
