Chelsea are reported to be very interested in RB Leipzig midfielder Christopher Nkunku.
He isa player that manager Thomas Tuchel already knows well because they were at PSG together. Christopher Nkunku
The 23-year old attacking midfielder came through the academy system at the Parisian club, but, having made 78 appearances for them in all competitions, he left them for the Bundesliga in 2019, agreeing a five-year deal with the German side.
He has since become one of the most sought after players in Europe, having added goals to his game since he has been in Germany.
And that is the facet of his game that particularly attracts Tuchel to the player, with his current options like Kai Havertz, Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic all regarded as inconsistent in that respect.
The Blues though could face competition from some familiar names when it comes to his signature, with Manchester City and Real Madrid also keeping tabs on him.
