Chelsea 2023-2024 continues to take shape. If Todd Boehly plucked the daisy from the occupant of the bench once the Premier season was over, the formation of the revamped squad blue continues its course in the coming weeks. Mauricio Pochettino has a say in the decisions of the squad. The non-continuity of João Félix at Stamford Bridge is one of them. And the arrivals that occur and especially the departures will be a matter of the Argentine coach. He will have signings. Among them one that will be made official in the coming days.
The hiring of Christopher Nkunku (25 years old, France) has been an open secret for some time at Chelsea. It is expected that the London entity will not take long to announce the signing of the French international. The player already passed a medical examination in the London city months ago and Leipzig and Chelsea agreed on the transfer figures. Precisely it has not been announced before because Leipzig had to extend the season until the Cup final this Saturday. The entity of the energy drink, with Nkunku in a stellar plan, played yesterday the Cup final against Eintracht in what was his last game with Leipzig. He scored a great goal to set Leipzig’s victory on track. Nkunku arrives at Chelsea as the top scorer in the 2023 Bundesliga, an honor shared with Füllkrug. And that the French attacker was injured half a season. A mishap that prevented him from going with France to the World Cup in Qatar.
Nkunku lands at Chelsea to bolster the front of attack, although the English have numerous troops in that area of the field. Nkunku can play false nine; of second point, even, punctually lying in a band. He will have outings at Chelsea and with Nkunku at Stamford Bridge he has to make room for him. The other footballer who will be at Pochettino’s disposal on the first day of Chelsea’s preseason will be the winger Malo Gustosigned in the winter from Lyon and who remained on loan in France until the end of the campaign.
