The player in question is RB Leipzig’s Christopher Nkunku, who is worth €80 million according to transfermarket.com.

The 25-year-old is a natural attacking midfielder. He did, however, play in a variety of positions this season, including up front in a two.

However, his most productive role has been as an attacking midfielder in a front three.

Last season, Nkunku played in 46 games across all competitions, scoring 30 goals and providing 20 assists. And he’s continued to shine in 2022/23, with 17 goals and four assists in 23 games.

Christopher Nkunku to Chelsea, How will he fit in?

Such impressive output was expected to earn Nkunku, who is under contract until 2024, a massive transfer fee.

Over the course of last season, the French international was linked with a number of Premier League clubs, with Chelsea being the most heavily linked.

Chelsea have received a boost as RB Leipzig sporting director Max Eberl has suggested that a transfer for Christopher Nkunku is in the works after confirming interest in the France international.

Chelsea are said to be close to signing the 25-year-old, and Eberl stated at a press conference on Friday that they risk losing him:

“Of course, there is a lot of interest in Nkunku, and there is a lot of talk, that’s the way it is.” As a result, a threat is looming,” he said.
