Chelsea have confirmed the signing of Senegal international Nicholas Jackson from Villarreal in a deal worth €35 million (£30m/$38m).
  • Jackson joins for €35m
  • Striker scored 12 goals in La Liga in 2022-23
  • 22-year-old pens eight-year deal

WHAT HAPPENED? Jackson has signed an eight-year contract with the Blues after an impressive season in which he scored 12 La Liga goals for Villarreal.
