RB Leipzig manager Marco Rose has now confirmed Christopher Nkunku is joining Chelsea at the end of the season.

After Nkunku scored the winner in the victory over Hoffenheim, Rose revealed the France international is in his final weeks as a RB Leipzig player.

Speaking to reporters after the game, Rose said: “That [winning goal] should give him a boost for the next few weeks – for his last few weeks with us.”

A deal for Chelsea to sign Nkunku for a fee of €60m has reportedly been agreed and firmly in place since the beginning of 2023.
