Nicolas Jackson Sets To Undergo Chelsea Medical

Villarreal forward, Nicolas Jackson is undergoing a medical for Chelsea this weekend as he looks to complete his £30 million move.

The 21-year-old Senegal international scored 13 goals last season in a breakthrough campaign at Spanish side Villarreal.

He got nine goals in his last eight games, as the Yellow Submarine finished fifth in the La Liga table.

Chelsea are in need of goal scorers after being strongly in front of goal last season and will add Jackson to the addition of Christopher Nkunku, who joined this week.

Meanwhile, Mendy after losing his place in the Chelsea team, will follow N’Golo Kante in switching to London for the Middle East, with Kalidou Koulibaly and Hakim Ziyech likely to follow.


Chelsea are offloading several unwanted players after going through last season with a bloated squad, with new manager Mauricio Pochettino promising fewer players to manage.

Meanwhile, the West London Club who want £12 million for Wales midfielder, Ethan Ampadu are ready to send David Fofana out on loan, and are resuming talks with Brighton over a deal for Moises Caicedo.

The hunt for a central midfielder has been hot this summer with Caicedo and Declan Rice among the most talked-about players likely to move.

While Rice is of stern interest from Arsenal, Manchester City are now also moving the sign the West Ham captain.

Arsenal are tracking Rice and Caicedo, but may have to settle for Romeo Lavia if the two players end up joining City and Chelsea respectively.
