The acquisition of Nicolas Jackson from Villarreal has been officially announced by Chelsea
Fabrizio Romano claims that Chelsea made a nearly €37 million offer to The Yellow Submarine. Even though the price is a little bit higher than the €35 million release clause in the 22-year-old’s contract, the agreement will be paid in installments, giving The Blues better terms for repayment.
The Senegalese international was being pursued by the Stamford Bridge team for a number of weeks, and they have finally signed him to an eight-year contract through 2031, beating out interest from other Premier League clubs and elite European teams like AC Milan and RB Leipzig.
The forward’s transfer comes after a standout 2022–23 season in which he scored nine goals and provided two assists in his final eight La Liga games for Quique Setiens team, wowing many with his exceptional speed, power, and finishing skills.
As the London club begins what is expected to be a massive summer rebuild, with £100m projected to be brought in through some significant player sales, Jackson will be the new head coach Mauricio Pochettino’s first acquisition at the club.
Four talents appear likely to leave for Saudi Arabia, Mateo Kovai and Kai Havertz have already joined Premier League rivals Manchester City and Arsenal, while the club recently accepted a £60 million approach from Manchester United for England international Mason Mount.
