Chelsea have secured the signature of Nicolas Jackson from Villarreal, strengthening an already formidable squad. This signing further exemplifies Chelsea’s determination to raise the bar and conquer both domestic and European football.

Jackson, 22, joins the Stamford Bridge side on an eight-year deal after scoring 12 goals for the Spanish club last season, including nine in the last eight games.

Media reports stated the deal for the Senegal international was for £32 million. He is the second forward to join Chelsea this summer after Christopher Nkunku.

Co-sporting directors Laurence Stewart and Paul Winstanley told the Chelsea website: “We are excited to welcome Nicolas to Chelsea. He is a young player with big potential, as he showcased for Villarreal last season.

“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.”

Jackson’s arrival came shortly after the Blues announced that Loftus-Cheek had completed a permanent move to AC Milan.

The 27-year-old joins Milan on a four-year deal running until June 2027.

His departure from Chelsea comes after 19 years with the club, having joined their academy in 2004.

He made 155 appearances for the Blues, scoring 13 times, and earned Premier League, Europa League and Uefa Super Cup winners’ medals.

In a league renowned for its intensity and unpredictability, Chelsea’s astute transfer dealings indicate a commitment to long-term success. For competitors, the arrival of Nicolas Jackson is a source of trepidation. The English football landscape braces itself as Chelsea’s ambitious overhaul gains momentum, leaving their rivals scrambling to keep pace with the relentless force that is currently unfolding at Stamford bridge.
