As far as the transfers are concerned, reports indicate that the Merseysiders want to further reinforce their attack in the summer transfer window and Christopher Nkunku is on their radar.

Last week, ESPN revealed that Liverpool are interested in signing the French international, who is valued at 75 million euros (£62.5million) by RB Leipzig.

More recently, Sky Sports’ Joe Thomlinson has backed the Anfield club to secure the signing of Nkunku from the Bundesliga side. The presenter stated on the Football Daily:

“I think Christopher Nkunku is the guy for Liverpool.”

“I think he’s just so perfectly laid out for how they want to play football, that it naturally fits. He can play on both sides, his off-the-ball work is sensational, his underlying numbers this season are just absolutely frightening, aren’t they?”

The 24-year-old can play anywhere in the attacking third but mainly, he features in the No. 10 role for Leipzig and has been in sensational form for the German club.

So far, in 26 league starts this term, the 2-capped international has directly contributed in 29 goals (16 goals and 13 assists) for the Red Bull Arena outfit.

In your view, should Liverpool spend £62.5million to secure the signing of Nkunku?
