Christopher Nkunku is a player that Chelsea are really really pushing for, and are leading the race for the RB Leipzig forward so far in the transfer window. Chelsea had interest in the player in the summer, and made a move of sorts by organising a medical with the player in August.

RB Leipzig have since signed Benjamin Sesko, who is expected to be the replacement for Nkunku when he does leave the club. His destination is expected to be Chelsea, who are leading the race at the moment.

Nkunku has yet to comment on the rumours as of yet.
