Bundesliga side RB Leipzig have set an enormous asking price on midfielder Christopher Nkunku ahead of the summer transfer window.
The midfielder who is believed to be a target for both Manchester United and Arsenal wants to join the Premier League but his club wont allow him to go cheaply as they are demanding a sum of £62.5 million from his suitors.
According to German publication BILD, Leipzig are reluctant to let the Frenchman move but a huge sum might persuade them to let go of one of their most prized assets as they seek to use the money to further develop more talents in the team.
Christopher Nkunku has now been directly involved in 20 Bundesliga goals this season:
◎ 23 games
◉ 13 goals
◉ 7 assists

Apart from Arsenal and United, French giants Paris Saint-Germain have also been linked with the player before and it remains to be seen where he will land next.
United boss Ralf Rangnick knows the player well and would want him at Old Trafford as they seek to address their midfield woes and with the future of Paul Pogba still uncertain.
