Nkunku not for sale

French attacking midfielder Christopher Nkunku has been linked with a move to Manchester United and Arsenal at the end of the season.

Apparently, the two Premier League clubs are very interested in securing the 24-year-old’s services but the German club have insisted that they will hold on to him beyond this summer.

According to a report from Sky Sports, the 24-year-old is considered an indispensable asset for the German club and they are not prepared to cash in on him just yet.

Nkunku has been outstanding for RB Leipzig this season and he has the potential to develop into a world-class footballer in the future.

Both Arsenal and Manchester United could use a player like him and it remains to be seen whether they can convince Leipzig to sell him.

The 24-year-old has 30 goals and 20 assists to his name across all competitions this season.

AC Milan keen on Lukaku

Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku has been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge at the end of the season and AC Milan are keen on signing him.

The Blues paid £97m to bring the Belgian back to Stamford Bridge but he has had a disappointing spell at the London club so far.

Lukaku has struggled to hit top form and he has publicly admitted his desire to leave the club in the future.

AC Milan could definitely use a quality goal scorer and the Belgian would be a quality acquisition for them.

The 28-year-old has played his best football with Inter Milan in Italy and a return to Serie A could be ideal for the player at this stage of his career. Lukaku is a world-class player on his day and he could improve AC Milan significantly next season.

Everton and Spurs want Johnstone

England goalkeeper Sam Johnstone has been linked with a move to the Premier League at the end of the season.

The 29-year-old has been quite impressive in the championship with West Brom and the likes of Everton and Tottenham are keen on securing his services.

Everton keeper Jordan Pickford has been quite inconsistent and the Toffees could definitely use a quality shot-stopper to push Pickford for the starting birth.

Meanwhile, Tottenham will need to plan for the future and Johnstone could be a quality long term replacement for club captain Hugo Lloris.

The 29-year-old is likely to be tempted to move on if a Premier League club comes calling in the summer and it will be interesting to see where he ends up.
