RB Leipzig forward Christopher Nkunku has signed a pre-contract agreement to join Chelsea in the summer, according to the Athletic.

The 24-year-old has a €60m release clause written into his contract with his current club, and the report suggests that Chelsea have agreed to pay in excess of that fee in order to tie down the player immediately.

It’s thought that the Blues have beaten a number of Premier League sides to the signing.

Nkunku has scored 55 goals in 148 appearances for Leipzig, and was named as Bundesliga Player of the Season in 2021/22.
