Chelsea and Manchester City are among the clubs interested in signing RB Leipzig attacker Christopher Nkunku.
The Frenchman has been in excellent form for the Bundesliga outfit this term, bagging nine goals and three assists in 10 appearances.
His form has grabbed the attention of elite European clubs. Chelsea and City are keeping tabs alongside Real Madrid.
However, they ended up pursuing Eduardo Camavinga instead as the priority was to strengthen the midfield for the immediate future.
They could return for his services in the New Year, but they could face fresh competition from at least two Premier League clubs.
A reunion could be on the cards at the beginning of the year with the Blues still struggling to find a playmaker that can score regularly.
