Christopher Nkunku has vowed to “give everything” for Chelsea after completing his move to Stamford Bridge.

The France forward, 25, signed a six-year contract with the Blues earlier this week as the club finalised his reported £63million switch from RB Leipzig.

He had committed to moving to Stamford Bridge when he signed a pre-contract agreement last December.

And Chelsea will hope he can bolster an attack that scored only 38 goals in the Premier League last season.

Nkunku said: “I am a hard worker. I will give everything for the club, for the fans and to help the team bring some trophies, to give the best of my football.

“I hope I will make them as happy as I am to be here at this club.”

Nkunku scored 23 goals in 36 appearances for Leipzig in an injury-hit 2022-23 in which he was forced to miss the World Cup.

Chelsea’s struggles in the second half of last term, when they limped to a 12th-placed finish, have not dampened his enthusiasm for the move.

He said: “I think the project was good for me. It is a good project for me to develop myself as a player and a man also.

“And this is a good city, after all, and for sure I want to improve in football and I want to win trophies and improve myself also.”

Nkunku is the first new player to arrive at Chelsea since former Tottenham and Paris Saint-Germain boss Mauricio Pochettino was appointed as manager.

The striker, who began his career at PSG, added: "I have not had a chance to speak to him, not yet.

“I spoke to some of my friends from Paris about him a little bit. I speak about him a little bit with some of the players.

“They told me that he’s a very good coach and I’m excited to work with him.”
