RB Leipzig star Christopher Nkunku has been named Bundesliga’s Player of the Season for the 2021-22 campaign as speculation over a Premier League move persists.
Nkunku won the German top flight’s Player of the Month award a single-season record four times – in October, February, March and April – and has been subsequently rewarded with the end-of-season accolade.
Nkunku’s development has not gone unnoticed by France coach Didier Deschamps, as the 24-year-old made his Les Bleus debut in a friendly against Ivory Coast in March
He will hope to make Deschamps’ squad as France aim to defend their World Cup title at Qatar 2022 in November and December.
There remains uncertainty over who Nkunku will be playing for next season, with Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal all reportedly interested but Leipzig eager to keep him.
