And according to reporter Iomie Stanley – he could be a huge signing for the Blues
He told icfootballnews: ‘Nkunku is a man that is destined for the big Leagues.
‘He has shown himself to be a very good attacker at the very highest level – both at club level and international level.
‘He will bring goals – he will bring creativity and he will bring that quality that Chelsea have been lacking in the final third this season.
‘The only worry is if he is able to adapt to the Premier League – as we have seen a few players arrive in the coming seasons that have not been able to cope with the physical nature of the English game.
‘But if he does manage to adapt – if he is able to handle the British media and if he is able to handle the pressure of playing for Chelsea – – he will be a huge signing.’
