Nicolas Jackson of Villarreal is expected to have his release clause activated by Chelsea, making him their first signing of the season ahead of other Premier League clubs who are also keen.
According to reports, Villarreal’s Nicolas Jackson will have his release clause activated by Chelsea.
Nicolas Jackson, a 21-year-old Senegalese marksman, appears to be Mauricio Pochettino’s first signing at Stamford Bridge.
According to Fabrizio Romano, the Blues decided on to activate Jackson’s release clause, which is worth €35 million (about £30 million). Chelsea acted quickly to outbid three other Premier League clubs who were equally eager to activate the clause.
Nicolas Jackson is thought to be interested in a move to England and is expected to sign a five-year contract in west London as Pochettino wants to add goals to a Chelsea team that has only scored 38 in 38 league appearances.

Personal terms have also been met with the player, according to Athletic. Jackson’s arrival is expected to be the first of several changes at Stamford Bridge this summer, as Mauricio Pochettino attempts to add to the £600 million in talent recruited in previous season.
Chelsea are also thought to be interested in Celta Vigo’s 21-year-old midfielder Gabriel Veiga, as well as a proposal for Brighton & Hove Albion’s Moises Caicedo.
Romelu Lukaku os expected to return to Stamford Bridge in the summer once his loan at Inter Milan expires, will also be the subject of a decision. After joining from the Nerazzurri the previous summer for £97.5 million, the Belgian scored just eight Premier League goals.
