OFFICIAL: Chelsea sign Nicolas Jackson for reported €37m as club strengthen ahead of next season

Chelsea’s frenzied summer continues. They’ve just announced the arrival of Nicolas Jackson on the club’s official website.

The striker has signed an impressive 8 year contract after an impressive debut season in La Liga ended with a flurry of goals.

His talent is clear, and the fact that he had a €35m release clause made things even easier. Most reports say that Chelsea have paid a little more to spready their payments out a little.

Jackson is a number 9, and whether or not he proves to be a success he is at the very least a striker for a squad which basically didn’t have any. Even if he scores just 10 league goals next season, that will be a success considering our recent form.

Co-sporting directors Paul Winstanley and Laurence Stewart had the following to say:

“We are excited to welcome Nicolas to Chelsea. He is a young player with big potential, as he showcased for Villarreal last season.”

Even our new manager Mauricio Pochettino had a chance to say something about his new charge:

“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 teammates.”

We can’t wait to see him in action and we’re delighted this business was done nice and early, with Jackson ready to join up for preseason next week.
