RB Leipzig's Christopher Nkunku Delivers Major Update On Future Amid Chelsea Interest

Christopher Nkunku has provided an update on his future as the RB Leipzig star has been linked with a move to Chelsea this summer.

The 24-year-old has been in fine form in the Bundesliga, netting 35 goals and registering 20 assists in 51 appearances in all competitions.

Speaking to Telefoot, Nkunku has made an honest admission about his future, stating that there are several clubs interested in securing his signature this summer.

It has been reported that Chelsea and Manchester United are both interested in signing Nkunku in the summer after his impressive season in Germany.

Thomas Tuchel has worked with the 24-year-old previously during their time together at Paris Saint-Germain but the Frenchman failed to cement a regular place in the starting XI, departing under the German.

However, it is now believed that Tuchel's doubts over Nkunku's ability has been 'finally dispelled' as he targets a move for his former player in the summer.

When asked about his future, Nkunku admitted that he is aware of the interest in him but will 'think carefully' before making a decision.

He said: “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.

“Like I said, you just have to think it through.”

Nkunku is not the only one of Tuchel's former players that could be re-united with the head coach in the summer, as Ousmane Dembele has been linked heavily with a move to the Blues.

Dembele will be available on a free transfer as he is set to depart Barcelona at the end of his contract, whilst Nkunku could cost far more than his fellow countryman.

Several reports have stated that he would cost 'no less than €75m as RB Leipzig will look to do everything in their power to keep him in Germany when the clubs come knocking.

It is unclear as to whether Chelsea would be willing to meet this valuation, while Erik ten Hag looks to add the 24-year-old to his Manchester United squad during his summer rebuild.

Chelsea have several attacking options still at the club, with departures most likely needing to happen before they make a move to add to their attacking options.
