Arsenal are set to rekindle their interest in Leipzig winger Chrisopher Nkunku this summer, according to reports.
The Gunners have been fans of the Frenchman for many years – going back to his time at Paris Saint Germain – and are now ready to return to the table for the 23-year-old to add some firepower to Mikel Arteta’s options on the wing, as reported by Sky in Germany.
Nkunku continues to go from strength to strength in his early career and has impressed this season with seven goals and six assists in all competitions.

His displays are said to be attracting a host of interest from a host of elite sides in Europe, with Real Madrid reportedly in the running for his signature too.
Earlier this year French media reported that Los Blancos were quoted £27million for Nkunku with Zinedine Zidane believed to be tracking his progress with a handful of his players ageing and facing uncertain futures.
Nkunku had a season to remember in the last campaign too – notching five goals and 13 assists in the Bundesliga – and Leipzig will be facing a battle to keep hold of him, along with a number of their top stars.
Having lost star forward Timo Werner to Chelsea for £53m last summer, the German outfit are expected to receive bids for midfielder Marcel Sabitzer – with Tottenham interested – and centre back Ibrahima Konate has been heavily linked with Liverpool.
The club have already sold star defender Dayot Upamecano to rival Bayern Munich, so they will be desperate not to lose another big name in Nkunku.
