Chelsea are reportedly likely to sign both Christopher Nkunku and Arsen Zakharyan from RB Leipzig and Dynamo Moscow respectively.

New speculation suggests that Todd Boehly is on the verge of securing a double transfer swoop.

RB Leipzig forward Nkunku, 25, is an exciting French forward with 17 goals in 23 appearances for his club so far this season. Fabrizio Romano has claimed the Blues are closing in on a deal to sign him next summer for €70million (£60million).

Meanwhile, Zakharyan is a teenage attacker that Chelsea reportedly tried and failed to sign for £12.6million in the summer. However, the 19-year-old youngster publicly admitted in October that he would still like a move to Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea likely to sign Nkunku and Zakharyan

Journalist Dean Jones has shared that the Chelsea’s two transfer targets are expected to complete moves to West London in the future.

Jones told GIVEMESPORT: “What we know is the Nkunku deal is being pushed through, there’s also the deal for Zakharyan that is being viewed as a priority. So those two are good and likely transfers that will happen.”

It looks like Chelsea’s revamp of their attack will continue in 2023.

Blues supporters have grown increasingly frustrated in the past few seasons with their forwards, so it seems inevitable that some new faces will be tried out at the top end of the pitch.

Raheem Sterling was the marquee addition to Chelsea’s frontline in the summer, but even he is still trying to get up to full speed.

Nkunku, who’s earning quite the reputation across Europe due to his eye-catching Leipzig performances, looks a superstar in the making.

As for Zakharyan, he’s a less proven talent but still with a lot of potential. He is already a first-team regular for Dynamo Moscow, with 35 direct goal contributions in 69 senior appearances to date.
