Journalist delivers update on how Nkunku’s possible move to Chelsea has been impacted by World Cup ending injury

Simon Phillips, a journalist, asserted on his Substack that Christopher Nkunku’s injury is not currently affecting Chelsea’s efforts to sign him.

The France international has been ruled out of the World Cup after suffering an injury in training during the week preceding the tournament.

The news will undoubtedly be devastating to the RB Leipzig player, who will no longer have the chance to shine on the international stage.

The tournament presented Nkunku with the chance to demonstrate that what he has been doing for the past 18 months can be replicated in front of a global audience.

Fans of Chelsea may have hoped to witness the skills of a player they anticipate their club will acquire in the coming months.

Nkunku injury not anticipated to effect Chelsea transfer

After attempting to sign him in the summer, the Blues held a secret medical as the transfer window closed in order to beat rival clubs to him in the future.

There may have been concerns that the potential for a successful deal was in jeopardy, despite reports indicating that the deal is close to completion.

Phillips, however, asserts that, according to his sources, the move to Stamford Bridge will proceed as planned.

He stated,  “Sources have told me early on that they don’t expect the injury to have any effect on us buying him, but we need to wait to hear the severity of it. “

Nkunku is expected to be the focal point of a revamped Chelsea attack under Graham Potter, with the manager reportedly already informing Todd Boehly that the club’s performance must improve for the owner’s satisfaction.
