According to a new report from the Netherlands, have agreed to sign from PSV Eindhoven as part of the club’s ongoing spending binge.

Chelsea have agreed to sign PSV starlet Madueke effective immediately, continuing an impressive January spending spree, according to Dutch football journalist Rik Elfrink.

Cody Gakpo, who had an outstanding start to the 2022–23 season and a similarly spectacular World Cup performance, was sold by PSV earlier this month, making it their first sale of attacking talent this month. The 20-year-old Madueke now appears destined for Stamford Bridge and the Premier League with Chelsea allowed to discuss personal terms and arrange a medical with a fee verbally agreed, according to Nizaar Kinsella.

A winger and attacking midfielder, Madueke spent time in the youth ranks at Crystal Palace and Tottenham before relocating to the Netherlands, where he rose through the ranks at PSV. Madueke was born in Barnet.

Head coach Ruud van Nistelrooy conceded that the club wouldn’t be able to turn an offer from Chelsea if it was strong enough, which now appears to have played out.

Chelsea have pulled no punches in the winter transfer market thus far as they desperately try and reshape their squad amid a difficult time on the pitch for Graham Potter’s side. Madueke follows the likes of Mykhailo Mudryk, Benoit Badiashile, David Datro Fofana, and loan signing Joao Felix to Stamford Bridge.

Now that a fee has been agreed upon, it seems more a matter of when than if the deal will be completed. However, personal terms and a medical appointment have not yet been scheduled, so Chelsea shouldn’t expect to see the England under-21 team play just yet. On Saturday, will host Potter’s team.
