With Dayot Upamecano and Ibrahima Konate already on their books, RB Leipzig added a third promising Frenchman to their ranks when they signed Christopher Nkunku from Paris Saint-Germain. Despite being only 21, Nkunku made 78 appearances for the perennial Ligue 1 champions in four seasons as a professional, illustrating just how highly rated he was at his former club.

Originally a winger but having displayed an ability to play centrally too, the France U-21 international took just four minutes to show Leipzig fans what they can look forward to on the opening week of the campaign, coming off the bench to net the fourth goal in a 4-0 rout of Union Berlin.

For a side already boasting the likes of Werner, Yussuf Poulsen and Marcel Sabitzer, having a prodigious talent like Nkunku waiting in the wings could be a huge boost to their hopes of winning the Bundesliga this season.
