Chelsea are poised to win the race for Christo­pher Nukunku next summer.

Nknunku has been linked with Man­ches­ter Unit­ed in the past, but Chelsea are like­ly to win the race after under­go­ing a med­ical for a trans­fer next summer.

Accord­ing to jour­nal­ist Chris­t­ian Falk, Nkunku under­went a med­ical in Frank­furt ear­li­er this month.

This is in antic­i­pa­tion of a trans­fer fee of €60 mil­lion from RB Leipzig to Chelsea.

Nkunku was vot­ed the best play­er in the Bun­desli­ga for his per­for­mances last season.

The sea­son got off to a great start, scor­ing six goals in 11 appearances.

Nkunku was “hon­ored” by the inter­est from clubs such as Chelsea, Man­ches­ter Unit­ed and Paris Saint-Germain.

Sum­mer said, “It’s a known fact, there’s a club that’s inter­est­ed in me.”

“I’m very hap­py that a club like Leipzig will do every­thing in their pow­er to keep me.

You have to “reflect” and “decide”. The upcom­ing World Cup is also a fac­tor to consider. ”

How­ev­er, Nkunku signed a two-year con­tract exten­sion with Leipzig in June, which will keep him at Leipzig until 2026.

But Chelsea’s inter­est in him cut him three years short.

Bruce is look­ing to bring in a ton of top-class tal­ent to revamp his aging midfield.

Among them are for­mer acad­e­my star Declan Rice, fel­low Eng­land mid­field­er Jude Belling­ham and French­man Nkunku.
