Nkunku signed for Chelsea in January but had to end the season with the German outfit, as reported by The Athletic.

Nkunku enjoyed a great season after coming back from injury to win the Bundesliga golden boot as well as the DFB Pokal.

The London club are also in the market for another striker, with Nigeria's Victor Osimhen on their list.

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that a Christopher Nkunku-inspired RB Leipzig won their second straight German Cup title on Saturday, beating Eintracht Frankfurt 2-0 in Berlin.

A shellshocked Frankfurt, who had the better of the second half looked to equalise but Leipzig scored again, Dominik Szoboszlai sweeping in on the counter.
