Lens striker Elye Wahi has confirmed that he turned down a move to Chelsea during the summer transfer window.
The Frenchman had a good 2022/23 season with Montpellier in Ligue 1. He scored 19 goals and provided six assists.
Chelsea were keen on landing his services with a view to loaning him out to Strasbourg, but Wahi snubbed the chance.
Nkunku has yet to make his competitive debut for the club, having suffered a serious knee injury during pre-season.
Jackson has started in each of the club’s opening four games of the new season, but he has just one goal to his name.
