Arsenal will need £62.5m to sign much-loved Bundesliga star
Arsenal have been linked with a move for Christopher Nkunku ahead of the summer transfer window.
The French midfielder has been in fine form at RB Leipzig and Arsenal are looking to land him away from the club, according to Sun Sports.
The Gunners need attacking reinforcements and Mikel Arteta will be keen to add him to his squad next season.
However, he wouldn’t be cheap as many clubs want to sign him.
Leipzig would prefer to keep the midfielder in their squad, but they also know they might be powerless to stop him from moving.
They have now set an asking price for his signing, according to Sports Bild.
The report claims that Leipzig have assessed several of their best players and they want £62.5m to sell Nkunku.
Just the opinion of Arsenal
Nkunku has 22 goals and 13 assists in 33 competitive appearances this season and that’s a stunning number.
The midfielder is still only 24 years old which means he’s not even at the peak of his career yet.
If he moves to the Emirates at the end of this season, we would be almost assured of the best years of his time as a footballer.
