Chelsea complete Christopher Nkunku signing from RB Leipzig

Chelsea have completed the signing of forward Christopher Nkunku from RB Leipzig, the club announced on Tuesday.

The France international has put pen to paper on a six-year deal at Stamford Bridge after his four-year spell in the Bundesliga.

“I am incredibly happy to be joining Chelsea,” Nkunku told the club’s website. “A big effort was made to bring me to the club and I am looking forward to meeting my new coach and teammates and showing the Chelsea supporters what I can do on the pitch.

“Having played in Ligue 1 and the Bundesliga, I now want to play in the Premier League, one of the strongest leagues in the world. I am very excited for this challenge and will be proud to wear the Chelsea shirt.”

Nkunku has been one of the standout performers in Germany for a number of years and was named Bundesliga Player of the Season and German PFA Player of the Season in the 2022-23 campaign.

The 25-year-old also helped Leipzig win back-to-back German Cups and contributed 23 goals in all competitions last season.
