Arsenal willing to pay record fee for RB Leipzig attacker Christopher Nkunku

Arsenal are prepared to pay a club record fee to sign RB Leipzig attacker Christopher Nkunku.

The Independent says Arsenal are willing to pay £100m to land Nkunku.

Paris Saint-Germain appear to be the Gunners’ main rivals in bidding for the Frenchman after Manchester United dropped out of the running due to Leipzig’s big price tag.

The Bundesliga side are intent on keeping Nkunku for another season and have reportedly offered him a new contract.

Liverpool have also been linked but appear unlikely to get involved after signing Darwin Nunez.
