Chelsea football club of England has signed Nicolas Jackson on Eight-year Contract From Villarreal.

The 21-year-old scored 13 goals in 38 appearances for the La Liga side last season, including nine in the final eight league games

He is the Blues’ second summer signing after the £52m deal for France striker Christopher Nkunku from RB Leipzig.

“He is a young player with big potential,” said co-sporting directors Laurence Stewart and Paul Winstanley.

“We believe he is ready for this next step in his career and look forward to him working with our new head coach, Mauricio Pochettino, and his Chelsea team-mates.”

The two clubs did not disclose the fee involved but it has been widely reported that Chelsea will pay £32m for Jackson.

Pochettino is in the process of reshaping Chelsea’s squad, with a number of high-profile departures having been completed over the past week – and more set to follow.

Germany forward Kai Havertz has joined Arsenal in a £65m deal, while Manchester City have signed Croatia midfielder Mateo Kovacic for an initial £25m.
