A decent serving of Chelsea supporters on social media appreciated being mentioned in the same breath as RB Leipzig’s Christopher Nkunku.

Foot Mercato claimed the Blues have now added their name to the inventory of potential suitors for Nkunku.

The Frenchman announced himself to the continent by bagging a hat-trick against Manchester City in the Champions League earlier this season.

After that, six more goals have put him right up amongst Europe’s hotshot forwards and evidently, on the radar of Europe’s hotshot clubs.

Never ones to be too far away from a player in form, Chelsea are typically being tipped to make a move for the Leipzig attacker.

Certain Blues fans had no qualms with this particular deal, urging Roman Abramovich to whip out his wallet.

Here’s how they reacted on Twitter:

Understandably, whenever an individual starts making headlines, Chelsea’s name usually starts to circulate.

In Nkunku’s case, Manchester City and Real Madrid are also reportedly in the race, according to Foot Mercato.

A three-way battle between three of the biggest, boldest brands on the planet.

Who’d want to get in the way of that bout?  

Perhaps Nkunku’s agent, if a major money move for his client is on the table.

Troubles with Thomas

At the moment, the 23-year-old is contracted to Leipzig until 2024.

He signed for the Bundesliga side in 2019, after leaving Paris-Saint Germain due to a reported fallout with none other than Thomas Tuchel.

Could the pair work out their differences and join forces at Stamford Bridge?

An unlikely scenario, but football is built on surprises.
