Chelsea fans may get to see Christopher Nkunku in action for the Blues sooner than initially believed, according to a new report.
The French forward, who joined from German club, RB Leipzig in the summer, has been out with an injury since pre-season.
It was also previously reported that the 25-year-old may not make his competitive Chelsea debut until January. However, according to a new report by the London Evening Standard, that date may have changed.
The outlet claims that Nkunku could actually be ready to play for Chelsea by as early as December.
The France international has been working hard in the gym since the injury, in addition to some pool work to boost his recovery, and there’s growing confidence that fans will see him in action soon.
