Real Madrid have reportedly been offered the chance to sign Christopher Nkunku from RB Leipzig next summer.
The French midfielder, 23, has impressed during his time with the Bundesliga club having joined from Paris Saint-Germain in July 2019.
Nkunku has scored 21 goals in 94 appearances for Leipzig including a hat-trick in their 6-3 Champions League defeat by Manchester City last month.
Christopher Nkunku ‘has been offered to Real Madrid’ after a good start to the season at Leipzig in which the French midfielder has scored nine goals and contributed three assists
Nkunku scored Leipzig’s second goal in their 3-0 Bundesliga win over Bochum on Saturday
However, according to Mundo Deportivo in Spain, Nkunku’s agent Pini Zahavi has contacted Real Madrid to sound out a potential deal at the end of the season.
Nkunku would have two years remaining on his Leipzig contract next summer and is valued at upwards of £40million.
Capable of playing right across the midfield, Nkunku has enjoyed a bright start to the season with nine goals and three assists for Leipzig in all competitions.
Nkunku scored a hat-trick in Leipzig’s 6-3 loss to Man City in the Champions League last month
He scored twice in their 3-0 home win over Bochum on Saturday having also netted a double in a 6-0 thrashing of Hertha Berlin the weekend before.
Leipzig haven’t made the greatest start to the season, however, under new manager Jesse Marsch and sit eighth in the table having already lost three league games.
Real signed 18-year-old Eduardo Camavinga from Rennes over the summer and Carlo Ancelotti could well bring in another talented young midfielder in Nkunku.
