Nicolas Jackson Completes Chelsea Medical As Havertz Heads To Arsenal

Chelsea have agreed to pay around £30 million for the 22-year-old striker, Nicholas Jackson who has agreed to personal terms over a long-term contract at Stamford Bridge.

Nicolas Jackson is set to become Chelsea’s second signing of the summer after Christopher Nkunku completed his £53 m switch from RB Leipzig earlier this week

Chelsea wants to bolster their frontline for new head coach Mauricio Pochettino and identified Jackson as a cheaper alternative to £100m-rated Napoli striker Victor Osimhen.

The Senegal international scored 13 goals in 38 games for Villarreal last season and finished the season in blistering form, scoring nine goals in eight La Liga matches.

Chelsea have agreed to a £65m deal to sell Kai Havertz to Arsenal and they are trying to offload both Romelu Lukaku and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as they revamp their forward line.
