Senegalese Nicolas Jackson to join Chelsea in ₦30 billion deal

Nicolas Jackson has completed his highly anticipated medical ahead of a transfer from the Spanish club Villarreal Football Club to Chelsea FC.

The Senegal striker has a 30 billion naira (£30.1 million) release clause in his Villarreal contract, with the final details on an eight-year contract at Stamford Bridge being finalized, according to SkySports.

Jackson emerged as a prominent target for Chelsea this summer as they attempted to bolster their attacking line after signing Christopher Nkunku from RB Leipzig.

He scored 13 goals and provided five assists for Villarreal last season in all competitions, and there will be an official confirmation of his move to Stamford Bridge in the next few days.

The Senegalese burst onto the scene in the final eight games of the season, scoring nine goals to help Villarreal qualify for the Europa League.

Jackson fared favorably against Chelsea’s strikers during the 2022–23 season, ranking first in goals and major chances scored per 90 minutes.

More players are expected to join the London club as the Blues hope to bounce back after a bad season.

Chelsea will begin the new 2023–2024 Premier League season at home against Liverpool in one of the key ties of the championship openers.
