Premier League giants Chelsea are closing in on signing Nigeria-eligible winger, Noni Madueke from Dutch side PSV Eindhoven.

The 20-year-old began his youth career with English club, Crystal Palace and then moved to Tottenham Hotspur before dumping them for PSV Eindhoven in 2018.

He scored nine goals in 35 games last season but there are concerns that the Dutch club might not want to sell him, having seen Cody Gakpo join Liverpool.

Further findings have it that Chelsea are insistent on Madueke's signature, even though the Stamford Bridge club already spent £270-million in the summer since Todd Boehly took over the reigns.

Sky Sports reporter Kaveh Solhekol said on The Transfer Show:

"We could go on and on about how many player Chelsea have signed. There’s been lots of debate about how they’re going to comply with various Financial Fair Play [FFP] rules."

Solhekol said it would be interesting to learn the contract length of Madueke.

“We’ve seen Chelsea sign players on five, six, seven, eight-year contracts to spread out the cost of the deals, in order to comply with UEFA and Premier League FFP rules. That’s one to look out for.”

Madueke was born in Barnet, England to Nigerian parents and is still eligible to play for the Super Eagles.

Mass exodus looms at Chelsea

Sports Brief earlier reported that as many as five Chelsea stars could leave Stamford Bridge during the ongoing January transfer window.

The Blues have had one of the busiest transfer periods this month, with Graham Potter keen to build a team of his own that can challenge for titles.

The west Londoners have continued to spend big in the market, having already parted with more than £100-mil in fees this month.
