Tottenham have been linked with the RB Leipzig attacker Christopher Nkunku earlier this week.
According to Footmercato, Arsenal are thought to be keen on the Frenchman as well. Apparently, the German club will only sanction a move if the offer is right.
It will be interesting to see if Spurs can follow up on their interest with a concrete offer for the 23-year-old this summer. Nkunku has a contract with Leipzig until the summer of 2023 and he could be available for a reasonable price.
The Frenchman has shown his quality in the Bundesliga with RB Leipzig and he has the potential to succeed in English football as well. His direct style of play should be a good fit for the Premier League.
Jose Mourinho needs to add more depth to his attacking unit and Nkunku could prove to be a good signing for the Londoners. He will add goals and assists to the Spurs side.
The versatile Frenchman has played a number of positions under Julian Nagelsmann. He can operate in the central midfield, as a winger, as an attacking midfielder, a wide forward and a striker.
The 23-year-old has 7 goals and 6 assists to his name in the Bundesliga and the Champions League so far.
Nkunku cost the German side a fee of around €13 million in 2019 and Leipzig will be hoping to make a considerable profit if they sell him this summer.
Some of the Spurs fans have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on the links with Nkunku and here is what they had to say.
He’s so clear of sabitzer
We should rather go for him

He’s a very good player and hence we are not signing him
