Bundesliga player of the year confirms interest – tells Chelsea he is flattered by speculation


Chelsea target Christopher Nkunku will take his time when it comes to choosing his next destination – but has confirmed there is interest in his services

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 to Stamford Bridge

He said on Telefoot: “It’s no secret. There are clubs interested in me. Yes it’s flattering, but it’s also flattering to have a club like Leipzig do everything to keep me as well.

“I’ll have to reflect well and make a decision. The World Cup is on the way and that’s another factor to take into account.”

IcChelseanews view…

If the club are keen to add goals to that attack – he could be a very special signing – not only does he have the ability to score – but he has the ability to create too

So this is a signing that we highly-recommend that Chelsea try and wrap up – he really is a special talent
