Manchester United To battle Arsenal for £50m star

Published

on

In the 2019 January transfer window, Arsenal reportedly came close to signing Christopher Nkunku on a loan deal from Paris Saint-Germain.

However, the Gunners ended their pursuit of the French attacker and ended up completing the signing of Denis Suarez on a loan deal instead.

A few months later, Nkunku completed a permanent move from PSG to RB Leipzig for just over £11million – and ever since the France international has come on leaps and bounds.

The 24-year-old, who is now valued at £49.5million on Transfermarkt, has been in sensational form for Leipzig this season.

In 31 matches in all competitions for the Germans, Nkunku has a superb 31 direct goal contributions – meaning he is scoring or assisting, on average, once in every match.

A club’s interest in a player rarely disappears overnight – especially in Nkunku’s case, where he has kept progressing since 2019 – meaning Arsenal could still be keeping an eye on the Leipzig attacker.

However, the Gunners may have now suffered a blow in that respect, with one of their Premier League rivals – Manchester United – said to be interested in Nkunku.

According to ESPN, Man United interim boss Ralf Rangnick, who has a contract at Old Trafford until the end of the season where he will then move into a more senior position at the club, is urging his employers to step up their interest in the Frenchman.

Nkunku’s form has been sensational for some time now for Leipzig – and his former manager Jesse Marsch, when speaking last year, said the Frenchman had “no weaknesses” to his game.”

We have spoken to Christopher a lot about playing on the counter, and also what he needs to do to play as a striker, a number 10 and on both wings,” Marsch was quoted by the club website.”Christopher has no weaknesses.

He is young and still wants a lot more.

It’s always a good thing when a young player listens to the things we say and also wants to implement them.”

Working with him is a lot of fun as he is really intelligent and has a lot of potential.”

Manchester United, Arsenal, and Chelsea set to battle it out for Atletico Madrid forward

Manchester United, Arsenal, and Chelsea are all set to battle it out for Atletico Madrid forward Joao Felix.

Felix has endured a difficult start to the season for Atletico and is yet to score in five starts in the league.

Last season wasn’t much better for Felix, only managing 24 league starts.
With competition up top including French international Antoine Griezmann, Felix is often used as a rotation option under Diego Simeone.

Now, according to Fichajes, a move to the Premier League could be on the cards, with Manchester United, Chelsea, and Arsenal all interested in signing the striker.

Both Manchester United and Chelsea will need to find a long-term replacement for their current first-choice strikers.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are both reaching the latter stage of their careers for their respective clubs, so bringing a player with a similar age profile to Felix would be a smart move.

A move to Arsenal may not benefit Felix’s development as much, with Gabriel Jesus performing exceptionally well for the North London club and still only 25 years old.

Manchester United and fellow Premier League clubs are counting down the days until they can strike-up further business in the transfer market. Erik ten Hag welcomed six players to Old Trafford during his first window and they have all made their mark in the starting XI.

Tyrell Malacia, Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez have all quickly become mainstays, while Antony broke a record set by Zlatan Ibrahimovic when he scored on Sunday night. That 2-1 victory over Everton also saw former Real Madrid player Casemiro handed his first Premier League start for the club.

Martin Dubravka was the other recruit, signing on a season-long loan from Newcastle.

With one eye on January and future windows, meanwhile, United are understood to still have Frenkie de Jong on their radar, while elite clubs from across Europe will be queuing up for Jude Bellingham should he decided to leave Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund in the near transfer window.
