Christopher Nkunku sustained a knee injury against Borussia Dortmund during the club’s preseason tour, and Chelsea has confirmed that he will be out for an “extended period”.
The 25-year-old France international had to be replaced in the first half of the west London club’s final preseason game due to a knee problem that required surgery. Nkunku will now undergo rehabilitation with the club’s medical staff as a result of that.
The attacker, who cost £52m this summer, is thought to be out for a few months after being forced off against the German opposition while expected to play more minutes than his colleagues in preseason.
According to a statement from Chelsea on Tuesday, “Nkunku has sustained a knee injury which will rule the forward out for an extended period. The 25-year-old has undergone an operation and will now begin a rehabilitation program with the club’s medical department.”
