Chelsea, Manchester United and PSG transfer target Christopher Nkunku hasn’t ruled out a summer move but claims he’s happy to stay at RB Leipzig.

The striker has had the best season of his career so far with 35 goals and 20 assists in all competitions and was named Bundesliga Player of the Season ahead of the likes of Robert Lewandowski and Erling Haaland.

That form has seen the 24-year-old linked with a big move from Germany, with Chelsea and United particularly keen, while Nkunku’s youth club PSG are also in the running.

Nkunku, who is currently on international duty with France, was asked about the speculation linking him with a Parc des Princes return and admitted he was open to anything.

“Paris, I’ve always said it, it’s my home, my heart club,” said the forward at a press conference ahead of the French Nations League game against Denmark.

“I don’t close doors. Anything is possible in football.

“It’s flattering that the biggest clubs in the world are interested in me. But it’s also flattering that Leipzig is doing everything to keep me.

“It’s June and I’m concentrating on this meeting.”

It’s not known how much Nkunku could cost, but reports suggest Leipzig are set to listen to offers of around £60million.

Chelsea and United may be wary of signing the prolific striker as previous Bundesliga striker transfers have not been as impactful for the two clubs as Kai Havertz, Timo Werner and Jadon Sancho have suffered subliminal starts to their Premier League careers.

PSG may hold a special place in Nkunku’s heart but a move there is far from guaranteed as the club is already riddled with high-profile strikers like Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi.
