Nkunku managed seven goals and two assists in six appearances in the group stages of this season’s Champions League, and there has been a host of speculation surrounding his future.
We are believed to be interested in the Frenchman, who is capable of operating in a number of different positions in the final third of the field, as Thomas Tuchel looks to add some more quality to his squad.
The German has not been impressed with many of his star players this season, and it is widely believed that he will look to overhaul the squad in the transfer window.
However, the club will have a fight on their hands to sign Nkunku, as the talented young man has reportedly been told that he will not able to leave this coming summer window.
