Chelsea among clubs in the race to sign Christopher Nkunku from RB Leipzig
Chelsea is competing with Barcelona, Manchester United, and Barcelona to acquire RB Leipzig’s promising French forward Christopher Nkunku for around to £100 million.
This season, the former PSG young star has been lighting up the Bundesliga with stunning displays for the German club RB Leipzig. A flexible forward option capable of playing as a striker, false-9, attacking midfielder, or even on the wings. The 24-year-old is undeniably one of the most exciting prospects in town, with teams from all around Europe fighting for his services.
In just 54 appearances for Leipzig this season, the brilliant attacker has scored 34 goals and given 20 assists.
These types of figures are rarely common, and Nkunku is extremely gifted. Despite his fantastic scores, the Frenchman doesn’t appear to get enough attention, but that may change soon.
Despite having a contract until 2024 and the club explicitly saying that they have no intention of selling Nkunku, the 24-year-old sensation might be on the move soon.
The Frenchman is thought to be open to leaving the German club, and if that is the case, there will no doubt be other teams lining up to sign Nkunku. He will not be cheap, though, with Leipzig reported to seek close to £100 million to trade their prized asset.
