The 2022/23 season was Chelsea's worst in the last 30 years. They changed three managers but still finished 12th in the table. About one month ago, the board appointed Mauricio Pochettino as the new head coach. It was clear that the Argentinian would make many changes in the squad and one of the first moves was the signing of Christopher Nkunku.

Christopher Nkunku, who is he?

After graduating from the PSG Academy, Christopher Nkunku was not given the ideal option in Paris. Nkunku made 78 PSG images and just scored 11 targets in four seasons because Kylian Mbappe and Neymar were obviously ahead of the child.

It was day for a change after four years of slowdown at PSG. Christopher Nkunku relocated to RB Leipzig in the summer of 2019 for € 13 million. That action fundamentally altered Nkunku’s job. He played for the Bundesliga team for four seasons, scoring 70 targets and providing 56 help, which helped him advance to the top of the list of forwards in Europe. His development was noted because he has been a frequent target of exchange discussions in recent weeks. Chelsea suddenly made a£ 53 million offer, which RB Leipzig was unable to reject.

After joining Chelsea, Christopher Nkunku’s response

Christopher Nkunku declared that he had signed a deal with Chelsea.

I’m overjoyed to be a part of Chelsea. It took a lot of work to get me to the team, and I’m excited to meet my new coach and colleagues and demonstrate my abilities to Chelsea fans. I want to play in the Premier League, one of the world’s strongest teams, after playing in Ligue 1 and the Bundesliga. I’m looking forward to taking on this issue and wearing the Chelsea top with pride.

The style of Nkunku’s perform

Christopher Nkunku arrived at RB Leipzig as a left winger but, after a few seasons in the Bundesliga side, he started playing more as a lone striker or in a second striker role. Nkunku's versatility will give Chelsea more options upfront. His best attributes were always dribbling and quickness but, after getting more opportunities to play as a second striker, Nkunku developed his passing, vision, and chance-creation. Playing in the Premier League, arguably the best football competition on the planet, should further develop Nkunku's game.

There are almost two months until the Premier League starts and Christopher Nkunku's transfer is surely not the only one that Chelsea will make, but we now have a glance at what the team could look like in the next season. The Blues had so many problems with scoring goals last season, so the transfer of Nkunku should improve their creating and finishing of goal-scoring opportunities. His transfer could also mean that Chelsea have lost all their faith in Mykhaylo Mudryk, whom they paid € 70 million for last winter. The Ukrainian finished the previous season without scoring goals in 15 Premier League matches, so we should expect Nkunku to get to chance instead of the disastrous Mudryk.

Moving to RB Leipzig in 2019 was the right choice for Christopher Nkunku. Chelsea supporters may be hoping that his relocation to London will also be advantageous and that he may aid in bringing The Blues back to their heyday.

Nemanja eventually honed his abilities to assist others in making wise bets over the course of 15 years of gambling. He’s been playing basketball since he was a young child, but his interests are essentially in every game, particularly basketball and tennis.
