​Chelsea joining fight for RB Leipzig star Nkunku

Chelsea are among clubs showing an interest in RB Leipzig forward Christopher Nkunku.

The midfielder has been one of Leipzig's top performers this past season.

Nkunku is only 24, and won the Bundesliga Player of the Year award.

According to Goal.com, Nkunku is in contract negotiations with Leipzig, but may want to move on to a bigger club this summer.

Chelsea are seeking new attackers, as they look to solve their issue of a lack of goals.

However, they may need to sell players first, with the likes of Christian Pulisic, Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech unhappy with the lack of minutes they received last season.

Nkunku plays as a central attacking midfielder, but can also feature on either flank.

The Blues face a stern challenge in signing Nkunku, with Manchester United and PSG also linked with his signature.
