’20 assists last season’ – Chelsea consider signing of a £58m-rated playmaker


Chelsea are interested in signing RB Leipzig playmaker Christopher Nkunku this summer, Goal reports.

The Blues are set to spend big during the upcoming transfer window. It has been reported that manager Thomas Tuchel will be handed a £200 million transfer kitty, informs the FootballTalk.

The defensive department should be the prime priority with Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen leaving. Marcos Alonso has also been fancied to head for the exit door.

However, Tuchel may also want to reinforce the attack after Chelsea’s mixed fortunes in front of goal. Goal claims that the Blues are in the running to land Nkunku.

Leipzig have made it clear that he won’t be sold this summer, but the Blues are optimistic of prising him away.

Nkunku is currently in negotiations over a new Leipzig contract beyond June 2024, but Chelsea are aiming to disrupt talks and take advantage of any uncertainty.
