Noni Madueke will join Chelsea from PSV Eindhoven for €35 million, and a long-term contract will be signed by the attacker.
Chelsea Transfer News:
Fabrizio Romano claims that a transfer agreement for Noni Madueke has been reached between Chelsea and PSV Eindhoven. The winger has been sought after by the Blues for a few days, and they are about to pay €35 million to get him to Stamford Bridge.
As the buying spree continues, Chelsea is still working on their transfer business. The Blues’ most recent acquisition, Noni Madueke, may mark the end of the era of offensive reinforcements. Before the window closes, they might continue to concentrate on other members of their squad.
Some may have believed Chelsea had enough wide attackers in their lineup after they completed a Mykhaylo Mudryk signing. The Blues, though, have since added a second winger to their squad.
Noni Madueke will join Chelsea after reaching an agreement with PSV Eindhoven. For a transfer price of about €35 million, the English-born winger will join Stamford Bridge. His employment agreement’s duration is currently unknown. He will be the fifth person they have signed during this window.

Following the completion of the Mudryk deal, Chelsea immediately focused on Madueke. The 20-year-old winger was essential to the Blues’ plans, but getting PSV to sell was a challenge. Cody Gakpo had already been sold by the Dutch team to Liverpool, therefore there was no need to make any additional sales.
The player is already traveling to London after Chelsea persuaded their Dutch counterparts to agree. He will go through the necessary legalities and medicals. The 20-year-old winger could play in Chelsea’s match against Liverpool on Saturday if they are successful in getting him registered in time on Friday.
Madueke received a lot of interest from London clubs, notably his old club Tottenham, before the Blues finalized the signing. Like many other recent young arrivals, he might have decided to join Chelsea for their exciting future project.
Chelsea’s ongoing goal drought this season could make Madueke’s arrival an enticing one. He might contend with Raheem Sterling and Christian Pulisic for a starting spot and inject some much-needed energy into this squad.
