20 assist star addresses rumours and opens door to Chelsea move


Chelsea target Christopher Nkunku has not ruled out a summer transfer but claims that he is happy to stay at RB Leipzig.

It is no secret in the media that Thomas Tuchel is desperate to improve that attack during the summer transfer window and is eyeing up a number of possible signings for the club – and Nkunku is high up on the shopping list

The forward has enjoyed the best campaign of his career so far, scoring 35 and assisting 20 in all competitions, whilst also being named Bundesliga Player of the Season ahead of some of the biggest names in the game

Nkunku was asked about the speculation linking him with a move away from the Bundesliga side over the next few months – and he opened the door to a possible move in the summer

He said: ‘I don’t close any doors. Everything is possible in football.

‘It’s flattering to have the biggest clubs in the world interested in me. But it’s also flattering that Leipzig is doing everything to keep me.

‘We are in June, and I am focused on this gathering.’

Reports suggest that Leipzig will listen to offers of around £60million – although that may be higher considering the fact that he is one of the most exciting young players in Europe right and chased by all the biggest clubs

Nkunku is a man that is rising at a very fast rate – his numbers are so impressive that he could actually be a very good addition to this attack for next season

Certainly a player that excites us
