Chelsea have been linked with a move for RB Leipzig striker Christopher Nkunku.

The Blues made enquiries during the summer, but the striker wasn’t available for sale.

Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has revealed that Chelsea would make a move again next summer. Albeit, there will be interests from other rival clubs.

“There will be many clubs in the race for Christopher Nkunku next summer, including Chelsea as they’ve always been interested and attentive to his growth,” Fabrizio Romano said.

The France international is  highly rated, and he is being linked to a number of top clubs across Europe – like Real Madrid, PSG and Bayern Munich.

This season, the 24-year-old has already registered six goals in his first 11 games for RB Leipzig.
