According to renowned transfer journalist Fabrizio Romano, Nkunku had undergone the first part of his medical tests with Chelsea some weeks ago. He disclosed that the medical test secretly took place in Germany as The Blues want to complete the deal as soon as possible.
The deal is said to be a long-term contract, in which a proposal has been sent to the player’s camp to finalise the details of the potential move for 2023.
