How Chelsea will lineup next season with Christopher Nkunku upfront.
Fabrizio Romano claims that Chelsea’s agreement to sign Christopher Nkunku is “ready.” The Leipzig striker will soon be officially announced as a Blue.
Here is how the Blues might set up for the upcoming season with Nkunku up front because the transfer is most likely to occur in the summer.
Second striker in 3-5-2
Second striker is where Nkunku is most effective. Due to the fact that he has been paired with Andre Silva, his Leipzig record this season (12 goals, 2 assists in 15 games) is the result of this connection.
Armando Broja is the fittest player to play alongside Nkunku in a no. 9 position if Potter decides to make this tactical adjustment.
Centre-forward in 4-3-3
Nkunku can also play as a lone striker. This way, he would replace Aubameyang in Chelsea’s current starting XI.
With Sterling (if he finally finds his feet) and Mount either side of Nkunku, Chelsea would have a very dynamic front three capable of changing positions and creating chances for each other.
Wide forward in 3-4-3
Potter has employed the 3-4-3 system the most so far this season; how would Nkunku fit into it?
Simple: by removing Raheem Sterling, the team’s undeniable weakest link. Nkunku is able to play on both sides of the attack, but on the left he poses a greater threat since he can score by cutting inside with his powerful right foot.
