According to the Independent, Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel is interested in signing Christopher Nkunku, the Frenchman.

After all, the 23-year-old midfielder did work under Tuchel’s management when the latter was a head coach at Paris Saint-Germain.

Blues boss Thomas Tuchel thus coached the 23-year-old, who can also play as a winger, at Paris St Germain.

Chelsea need him to bolster their midfield this season. However, the London side will have to face stiff competition from football giants like Real Madrid and Manchester City.

So, after he impressed in both the Champions League and Bundesliga, the midfielder has the elite trio on hook.

Nkunku has scored four times in just two games in the Champions League. Meanwhile, in the Bundesliga he has a record of four goals and two assists in seven games. And this has put him on the radar of the senior France team.

Three of the biggest European giants are also pursuing Nkunku signature, with Chelsea and Manchester City apparently circling the closest.

However, Real Madrid may be on good terms with the midfielder’s agent Pini Zahavi, who also represents newbie David Alaba.

While, Tuchel has a personal connection with Nkunku, Manchester City have seen him in action at their home, with interest.

His hat trick at the Etihad in their Champions League group stage game attracted eyes from the home side. In this football match, however, they themselves eventually came out as 6-3 winners over RB Lepizig (football prediction).
