Kylian Mbappe issues Chelsea a seal of approval to finalize £43m Rayan Cherki transfer

It is reported that Chelsea are contemplating a potential transfer for Rayan Cherki, a prominent player from Lyon, and it is worth noting that Kylian Mbappe is already a strong admirer of the young French talent. The Blues have already concluded six new signings during the summer transfer window and are unlikely to halt their activity there.

Firstly, Christopher Nkunku completed a transfer worth £52 million from RB Leipzig to join Stamford Bridge, followed by Nicolas Jackson’s arrival from Villarreal. The club has also secured the signature of Kendry Paez, a promising young player from Independiente del Valle, who will officially become part of the Chelsea squad once he reaches the age of 18.

Furthermore, Dujuan Richards, Alex Matos, and Diego Moreira have all been recruited by Chelsea, with the aim of strengthening the club’s academy ranks. Todd Boehly, in his pursuit of acquiring top talents from around the world, continues to bring in promising individuals.

Although Mauricio Pochettino had initially planned to add a goalkeeper, central midfielder, and striker to his squad for the upcoming season, the substantial number of departures from the club could lead to even more arrivals than initially anticipated.

Kai Havertz’s departure from Chelsea has seen him join their London rivals Arsenal, while Mason Mount is expected to complete a £60 million transfer to Manchester United in the near future. Additionally, Kalidou Koulibaly, N’Golo Kante, and Edouard Mendy have left the club, all moving to clubs in Saudi Arabia.

Mateo Kovacic has joined Manchester City, the reigning Premier League champions, and Ruben Loftus-Cheek has signed with AC Milan. As a result, Mauricio Pochettino, the manager of Chelsea, will be keen to reinforce his midfield options. Rayan Cherki, a talented young player from Lyon, has emerged as a potential target for the Blues.

According to Simon Phillips on Substack, Chelsea is contemplating making a move for Cherki, who has been impressive in France. The young player’s performances have already caught the attention of Kylian Mbappe, the superstar from Paris Saint-Germain, who believes that Cherki is performing at a level far beyond his age.

Following Rayan Cherki’s remarkable performance of scoring two goals and providing two assists in a single game for Lyon at the tender age of 16, Kylian Mbappe took to Twitter with a message: “Don’t talk to him too much about age, huh..” 

Cherki displayed impressive form throughout the last season, contributing five goals and six assists in various competitions for Lyon. As reported by But Football Club, the French club has set an asking price of £43 million for their gifted playmaker.
