Liverpool attacking target reluctant to renew Leipzig contract

Liverpool have handed a boost in their efforts to sign Christopher Nkunku, as the player is reluctant to sign a fresh deal at RB Leipzig.

The Frenchman had a superb campaign with Die Roten Bullen and his exploits in Bundesliga and Europe has seen Christopher pop up on the transfer radars of multiple top clubs across the continent.

The Reds and Chelsea are keen on a move for the star, with both clubs planning to bolster their attacking options in the summer, while Real Madrid and Manchester United are also interested in the attacker.

He is contracted at the Red Bull Arena until the summer of 2024, but the management wants to tie him down to a new contract.

However, according to German source Spox and Goal, Christopher is hesitant to extend his spell at the club, which is a boost to his potential buyers.

The RB Leipzig board are optimistic about their chances of retaining the services of the former Paris Saint-Germain ace beyond this summer.

The club could be tested though with an acceptable offer for him. The forward grabbed an impressive 35 goals in 51 matches across all competitions for his team in the recent season.
