Nkunku to Chelsea: Why Every Chelsea Fan Should be Extremely Happy with the Deal



By appointing a new manager who adheres to their vision and by bringing in excellent young players, the new owners are starting to put the pieces in place for the next great Chelsea club, one that will compete for major accolades on all fronts. And they accomplished it by coming to a transfer agreement for Christopher Nkunku with RB Leipzig.

The Daily Telegraph’s Matt Law, David Ornstein, and the well-known Fabrizio Romano all reported last week that Nkunku had a private medical exam in Frankfurt to help ease his transfer to Chelsea during the forthcoming summer 2023 transfer window. In order to secure his services, the Blues have now agreed to a pre-contract with the player and have informed RB Leipzig that they are willing to pay far more than the Frenchman’s release clause (currently set at €60 million).

Chelsea are currently in a period of transition, and the new owners wanted to lock down and secure these deals in front of their rivals, but they were unable to do so prior to the ownership changing hands on May 30th. Having said that, we now see why Chelsea moved so quickly to sign him, but we are still unsure of what convinced them that he was the right choice. Before we begin, let’s briefly review this prospective new Chelsea player’s earlier career.

I can see why a Chelsea supporter might not be overly enthusiastic. Christian Pulisic from Dortmund, Timo Werner from RB Leipzig, and Kai Havertz from Bayer Leverkusen, their most recent three additions from the German Bundesliga, haven’t lived up to expectations. Nkunku, however, clearly differs from these other three players in terms of style of play.

In contrast to the football played under former manager Thomas Tuchel, Graham Potter is noted for playing a very optimistic brand of the game.

As a result of his time working with Julian, Nkunku is also accustomed to his squad pressing from the front. Nkunku possesses the viciousness and ruthlessness that Chelsea’s other attackers lacked. As Potter mixes and modifies his tactics and formations in response to his opponents’ playing styles, he needs a player who can score, create, take corners, freekicks, and score from long range.

Overall, this transfer appears to be excellent and thrilling. With players like Reece James, Marc Cucurella, Mason Mount, and Wesley Fofana, the core of the next great team that Boehly is attempting to assemble is beginning to take shape, and with the addition of Christopher Nkunku, the Blues may have more goals guaranteed after acquiring Raheem Sterling from Manchester City.
