Chelsea owner Todd Boehly is in negotiations for second January deal to help Graham Potter game

Youssoufa Moukoko, a revelation for Borussia Dortmund, is apparently being negotiated by Chelsea as a follow-up to the contract for Christopher Nkunku. After paying a rumored £63million fee to beat out other teams for Nkunku’s services, the Blues could have to wait until the end of the current season for him to sign.

Graham Potter, however, will also need reinforcements for the time being, and the January window is an excellent time to do so. After Armando Broja suffered a terrible injury last week during a friendly match between Chelsea and Aston Villa, Potter is likely to start looking for a central striker.

In the early going of the season, under Potter, the Albanian international had accrued significant playing time, keeping both Kai Havertz and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang off the starting lineup. When the season restarts after Christmas, Potter will be looking for better things from both of them because the pair has struggled to have an effect in front of goal this year.

From the wide spots, Hakim Ziyech, Christian Pulisic, Raheem Sterling, and Mason Mount will be required to advance toward goal.

However, the January transfer window will be Potter’s first opportunity to make a move as Chelsea manager, and Moukoko appears to be the Blues manager’s top priority. Sky Germany reports that there have already been negotiations and talks between Chelsea and Dortmund regarding Moukoko.

Although other people have expressed interest in the teenager, Chelsea are considered to be the “hottest.” Boehly brought in Potter to replace Thomas Tuchel for part of the season with an eye toward the future, implying the team would switch tacks in the market.
