Chelsea FC will soon welcome another native Austrian who decided against the ÖFB team to their squad.
After the Croatian Mateo Kovacic from Linz, the Eisenstadt-born English youth team player Carney Chukwuemeka is also moving to the “Blues”.
Chelsea announced on Twitter that they had agreed a transfer with Aston Villa, the club of the 18-year-old top talent. Chukwuemeka would therefore travel to London on Tuesday and, after a successful medical check, sign a long-term contract with the “Blues”.
According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, this should be valid until 2028. According to the Italian, Chelsea will transfer 15 million pounds (around 18 million euros) to Birmingham for the native of Burgenland, plus possible bonus payments.
