CM: Milan among the clubs interested in RB Leipzig star with 30 goals this season

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are interested in signing Christopher Nkunku from RB Leipzig as he continues to have an incredible season, according to a report.

Nkunku is having an extraordinary campaign for the Bundesliga side and hopes to lead them to the Europa League final after their first leg semi-final victory over Rangers. The French forward – who can play as a playmaker, a winger or even as a striker – has 30 goals and 20 assists in 47 appearances in all competitions.

Calciomercato.com report that it is no surprise to hear that several teams are interested in signing the 24-year-old including Milan, as they are on the hunt for attacking reinforcements given that only Rafael Leao has been consistent in the trident so far this season.

La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) also linked the Rossoneri with a move for Nkunku when they stated that new owners Investcorp are ready to make a big sum of money available to strengthen in the summer.

  1. AC Milan famililar with French player, moncada should recomended this player to Maldini&massara. He is worth even 50m euro

  2. After Erling Haaland (who is obviously the best and most promising young striker in the world and one we can’t afford yet!), the next best up and coming strikers on the planet include Nkunku in that group (along with Alexander Isak and Osimhen IMO).

    Any of those 3 would come with a pretty big pricetag; but I think any of those 3 guys would become superstars at Milan as long as we add a CAM and RW player who can play and provide service (take on defenders w/ the dribble, deliver good crosses).

    1. Agree with Nkunku and Isak. But I have doubts about Osimhen. he is way too injury prone to justify the valuation and he has yet to show anything special in the big stages. As for example, Leao showed his class in UCL.
