Chelsea have been in hunt for a new forward to replace Romelu Lukaku that just left for Inter Milan on Loan, while Christopher Nkuku of RB Leipzig have been linked with Chelsea in recent weeks.
Today, Christopher Nkunku has signed a new contract with RB Leipzig until 2026.
The deal contains a $63M release clause for 2023, per multiple reports.
Christopher Nkunku’s release clause with RB Leipzig will be valid starting from summer 2023. Also, it could reach higher figures – as happened with other Leipzig clauses in the past. 🔴🇫🇷
For sure, many top clubs are already well informed on Nkunku’s situation.
According to 🔗 Fabrizio Romano – Sky Italia📲
This tends to be a big Blow for Chelsea, as they will now have to turn their attention somewhere else in this current transfer window…. Ousmane Dembele and Raheem Sterling have been heavily linked with the London club.
