Christopher Nkunku

French Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint Germain (PSG) are about to see the exit of one of their midfielders this summer.

According to French publication L’Equipe, PSG midfielder Christopher Nkunku is set for his medical at German Bundesliga club RB Leipzig ahead of a proposed move.

PSG and RB Leipzig had earlier agreed on a €15m move for the Arsenal target.

RB Leipzig will pay €13m for the young French midfielder while the remaining €2m will be in bonuses.

Christopher Nkunku was given his big break at PSG during the 2017/18 season by Unai Emery who spent two years with the reigning French champions.

Unai Emery was the PSG manager between 2016 and 2018 before he left to join Arsenal last summer.

The Spanish tactician tried to sign Christopher Nkunku during the winter transfer window in January.

The Frenchman also wanted the move to Arsenal earlier this year but the Gunners were unable to get the deal over the line.

Arsenal wanted to sign him on loan until this summer with the option of a permanent deal at the end of the loan spell.

The Gunners signed only Dennis Suarez during the winter transfer window.

The Spaniard joined Arsenal on loan from La Liga champions Barcelona until this summer and he has since gone back to Spain.
