Arsenal has been linked with a move for Christopher Nkunku ahead of the summer transfer window.
The French midfielder has been in blistering form at RB Leipzig and Arsenal is looking to take 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 group from next season.
However, he would not come 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 signature, according to Sports Bild.
The report claims Leipzig has placed a valuation on several of their top players and they want £62.5m to sell Nkunku.
Just Arsenal Opinion
Nkunku has 22 goals and 13 assists from 33 competitive matches this season and that is a stunning figure.
The midfielder is still just 24, which means he is not even at the peak of his career just yet.
If he moves to the Emirates at the end of this season, we would almost be guaranteed the best years of his time as a footballer.
Get him In!!
Perfect box to box midfielder to replace Xhaka, very energetic and brilliant in front of goal…
Would be a statement signing
This price seems too high, but Christopher seems a great player, we should get him, he would have a better impact in the team than Isak, Bissouma and Tielemans,
It is important we get goal scoring midfielders to add to which ever CF we sign.
No, it’s not high. This player has greater contributions than Vlahovic. I’m not too sure if Arsenal will even be able to compete for him. It’s worth spending the money.
We somebody like that, please get him for us thanks
I bet if Raul were still here we could have easily acquired him for a cool 120M…joking aside, this would be a brilliant move from a tactical standpoint, as he would provide us with some positional flexibility, secondary scoring, pace and another quality set piece option
Just get him in please!
Emery wanted to bring him in for a third of that price and we didn’t.
Where will martinelli fit in then?
Had arsenal accepted Unai Emery 2 times request we would have acquired this talent at £12.5m or even less.
What an irony
OT: SPUDS LOST 1-0 AT BURNLEY! GOONERS LOVE BURNLEY TONIGHT!
If he is coming in to replace Xhaka & Partner Thomas then go get the deal done and use what we get for Xhaka and all the wages available from the players walking on a free this summer.
He is playing some football to be fair and didn’t think we would’ve been linked with him but would be a super bit of business and yes everyone is right we could’ve had the kid for £12.5m but then again he may never had ended up the player he is now so it what it is.
Still need a CF, we are being linked with Victor Osimhen from Napoli, again another super signing if we are interested, these 2 would bolster our team in a massive way along with William Saliba returning to the Emirates for the defence who are doing pretty well this season in the league.
Top4 is a must if this is even to be an option for these deals to happen this summer. Imagine Christopher Nkunku, Victor Osimhen & William Saliba threw into this squad.
I still think we should go for Bissouma or Tilemans
Scoring in the German league is not the same as in England, plus he could be a one season wonder cos he wasn’t always this prolific, let’s not get our heads turned and then lose our targets..
We need two Strikers, Osimhen and Johnathan David
we need two midfielders Bissouma nd Tilemans
We also need another winger to support Martineli.. I love what am seeing from the Milan lad Rafael Leao.
At right back Jged Spence would do.. but if we can’t get him then Cedric is okay for atleast another year…
Bring back Saliba
Sell… Pepe, Xhaka, Holding, Leno and anyone currently on loan including Nelson
HOPE IT’S NOT TOO MUCH TO ASK?
@Buddy, Partey isn’t great at long range shots neither is Bissouma, means we would be short on goals again, Tielemans isn’t that physical either, the German league is slightly different from the EPL, Nkunku has a lot to offer, he scores, good at set piece, has pace, strength and is a box to box player,
IMO, he’s the right deal, Osimehn is totally preferred to Isak.
I hope Arteta gets Nkunku first.
@Longbernak… Partey and Tilemans will compliment each other’s flaws which are physicality and shooting, we don’t need someone who will need another two years to adapt to the league just like we saw with Partey or more recently Lokonga…
We need players who will make instant impacts especially in Midfield and ofcourse it looks like we might be in Europe next season… so no time for trying and testing… Tilemans or/and Bissouma should be a priority.. Partey scores for Ghana with the same boots he wears at Arsenal so obviously shooting is not a problem he will do score if given freedom to.
