Chelsea happy with deal in place for RB Leipzig striker Nkunku

Chelsea have agreed a deal for RB Leipzig striker Christopher Nkunku, it has been revealed.

The London Evening Standard says the Blues have moved to sign Nkunku and are confident of sealing a £50m move for the 25-year-old next summer.

Parties on all sides of the deal for Nkunku are tight-lipped on whether the deal has been completed, but several sources around Chelsea believe it is done.

The signing of further forwards is reliant on player sales, with Hakim Ziyech wanted by AC Milan and Christian Pulisic attracting interest from Juventus.

Nkunku was forced out of France's World Cup squad last week due to a knee strain.
