Nkunku left Paris Saint-Germain for Germany in 2019 and has since become one of Europe’s leading strikers.

The west London giants were eager to steal a march on their rivals for Nkuku’s signature, and duly moved quickly outside the transfer window by agreeing to pay more than his £53million release clause sterling, who is active this summer, to make sure they win the race.

The France international has won a string of individual awards since joining the Bundesliga after scoring 64 goals while providing 51 extra assists in 159 appearances.
