Chelsea is interested in Christopher Nkunku, who wants to leave RB Leipzig.
According to L’Équipe, the 24-year-old dynamic attacker has informed Leipzig of his want to depart this summer, despite Leipzig’s desire to keep him.

This season, the Frenchman has a total of 31 goals and 20 assists (51 direct goal contributions) in 48 games for Leipzig in all competitions.
With figures like these, it’s no surprise that he’s quickly become one of Europe’s most sought-after players.
According to football. London, it is understood that Chelsea has been following Nkunku’s improvement over the last few seasons, and there is a long-term interest in him.
Nonetheless, no decision on a transfer for the French star will be made until the club’s takeover is completed.
However, his form is so good that any new owners of the club would be compelled to buy the Leipzig forward, who can play wherever on the front line.
Nkunku’s contract at the Red Bull Arena is set to expire in just over two years.
Leipzig president Oliver Mintzlaff recently stated that Nkunku would stay with the club next season, but added that no one in football is “unsellable.”
“I’ve said it many times, and I’m delighted to repeat it: Nkunku will still be our player in the coming season,” Mintzlaff told Sky Sport, according to getting French Football News.
Considering all of these chelsea plans for Nkunku seem not to be hoped for.
