Christopher Nkunku enjoyed a stellar season for RB Leipzig. The former PSG man scored 35 goals and registered 25 assists in all competitions, His impressive performances earned him the Bundesliga Player of the Season award too. 

The forward had some impressive performances. His hattrick against the English champions at the Etihad comes to mind. He even won the DFB Pokal with Leipzing. Nkunku even got his first international cap for the French national team with these performances. 

With an astonishing campaign of this magnitude, it is no surprise that some big boys have started sniffing around. And the player himself has recently acknowledged it. Nkunku recently spoke to Telefoot and expressed his happiness at being the centre of interest from other clubs. But at the same time, he reinstated that he is loving his football in Germany. 

It’s no secret there are clubs that are interested in me. Yes, it’s flattering. But it’s also flattering to have a club like Leipzig doing everything to keep me. Here, we will have to think carefully and make a good decision. The World Cup is coming to life and this is a parameter to be taken into account

Which Clubs Are In For Nkunku?

Chelsea and Manchester United are reportedly hunting for the Frenchman’s signature.

Both clubs can do with someone of Nkunku’s profile. Chelsea have run into a barrage of issues with 97 million signing Romelu Lukaku. Their other forwards, namely Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic have not been able to impose themselves on the team. A player like Nkunku can add some much-needed goal threat to the Blues.

Manchester United too need some reinforcements up front. Edinson Cavani has left the club, and the poor performances of Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial haven’t helped. Jadon Sancho too has had a tough start to life in England, scoring just 3 goals in the league. A reliable attacker with Cristiano Ronaldo can surely elevate the level of the team.

Any club will be lucky to get a player of Nkunku’s calibre. However, with the campaign he just had, he will be a man in demand. It will not be easy to pry him away from Leipzig, but it may just be worth it.
