Chelsea are in cruise control when it comes to the impending transfer of RB Leipzig star Christopher Nkunku.

That’s according to journalist Paul Brown, who has issued a calming update to the Chelsea faithful, who were worried that the deal had fallen through due to a suspiciously quiet spell over the last few weeks.

Brown claims that there is nothing to worry about regarding to deal for the 25-year-old, with the club in a powerful position that means they can finalise the deal “pretty much when they want to.”

Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, Brown said: “I don’t think they have any reason to worry about Nkunku. That one seems to have been something that they can close pretty much when they want to, and that will help.”


The powers of the club have seemingly risen since Todd Boehly became co-owner, with the Blues’ next big purchase looking almost certainly like France international Nkunku.

Money talks, but you cannot argue that Boehly’s signings have been astute so far, with the “top talents” strategy a move that could pay off dividends in the near future.

The signing of Nkunku is equally as astute and emphasises Chelsea’s level of pulling power, and ambition by wrapping up a deal for a £52million star so early on in order to avoid a bidding war.

The club should continue to operate in this manner with their early efforts almost certain to bag them a star who has scored 12 goals in 15 Bundesliga appearances this season.

Chelsea supporters have nothing to worry about as this deal is as good as done, according to the latest update from Brown.
