Multiple reports have claimed Chelsea are close to sealing a transfer for RB Leipzig forward Christopher Nkunku.

Fabrizio Romano had claimed that the 24-year-old had already done a secret medical with Chelsea.

The Athletic’s David Ornstein has now claimed that the Frenchman has already signed a pre-contract agreement with the Blues, with the agreement between the clubs also ‘pretty much done and dusted’.

Reports also claim that Chelsea may need to pay slightly more than the ₤52.5 release clause for the Frenchman to ensure he’ll join the club next summer.

See some reactions from Chelsea fans about the possible signing of Nkunku.

Mod wrote on Twitter: “Welcome to the pride of London, Christopher Nkunku, please do not flop like your previous Leipzig predecessor is all I ask, cheers.”

Conn on Twitter: “How anyone can watch Nkunku and say he is similar to Werner is too funny man. Such a lazy & silly comparison.”

Jai McIntosh, Twitter: “Nkunku is a great player but I’m avoiding saying too much until he’s played a season for Chelsea. Too many memories of Bundesliga talent struggling at this club to be extremely excited.”

Tom Overend, Twitter: “Christopher Nkunku can play anywhere in the front line, or as a number 10. Bundesliga POTM for three months last season. Bundesliga Player of the Season 2022/23. This is a World Class addition”
