The Sport Info reports from the information gathered from the transfer news expert, Fabrizio Romano that Chelsea Jackson will fly to London to undergo medical tests.
Chelsea are set to activate Nicolas Jackson’s €35 million release clause as discussions with Villarreal over the structure are underway.
Fabrizio Romano insisted Chelsea have agreed to pay Nicolas Jackson’s €35 million release clause. The Blues are now discussing the deal’s structure with Villarreal, as the 21-year-old forward reportedly wants to join the Stamford Bridge outfit over other suitors.
Nicolas Jackson has had a good season with Villarreal, scoring 12 La Liga goals. His hot streak of form has attracted interest from many clubs, including a few from the Premier League. While he seems destined to depart Villarreal in the summer, Chelsea are the clear favourites to land the Senegal international.
Chelsea have been at the odds to sign the striker as they have a concrete interest in Jackson. The Blues seemingly stepped up their chase of the 21-year-old forward after it became clear Kai Havertz would leave them for another challenge.
Arsenal inches close to signing Havertz, and Chelsea are open to selling him for the right price. A curious situation is brewing at Stamford Bridge, as the club is still looking to replace potential exits with young stars.
No changes on Nico Jackson deal.
Villarreal informed since Monday that Chelsea will match €35m clause.
Clubs negotiating installments or loan players included.
It’s only matter of details.
Contract being prepared.
Jackson will only fly to London when deal is done.
