Chelsea ‘ready to launch transfer bid for Christopher Nkunku and rival Man Utd for RB Leipzig striker’s signature

CHELSEA are interested in signing RB Leipzig star Christopher Nkunku but will need to sell attackers first, according to reports.

Nkunku has caught the eye of several clubs following his astonishing form this season, scoring 34 goals and assisting 20 across all competitions.

Manchester United want to sign the Frenchman who is thought to be in talks over a new deal with Leipzig.

Chelsea believe they can disrupt those talks and entice the 24-year-old to Stamford Bridge this summer, according to Goal.

But first they may have to sell players to raise transfer funds and make space in their squad for Nkunku.

Thomas Tuchel faces a rebuild when the transfer market opens and signing defenders is his major priority, not new forwards.

But that could change should the Blues sell Christian Pulisic amid interest from Juventus.

Fellow winger Hakim Ziyech could also depart with Chelsea said to be open to offers for the Moroccan.

Meanwhile, Borussia Dortmund are reportedly considering a move for Timo Werner despite his poor form in front of goal this season.

Chelsea also look set to cash in on Armando Broja following his loan spell at Southampton this season – West Ham are plotting a move for the £25million-rated striker.

If Chelsea do make a move for Nkunku their bid could be rivalled by the Red Devils after United fans pleaded with their club to sign the star.

But reports claim even an offer of £84m might not be enough to convince the German outfit to do business.
