RB Leipzig have completed the signing of Chrstiopher Nkunku from Paris Saint-Germain, the club have announced.

The 21-year-old has put pen to paper on a contract until 2024 with 'Die Roten Bullen'.

"I'm overjoyed to be a RB Leipzig player. I've heard a lot about the club and I'm convinced that the way they play football here suits me very well. I even know a few of my new teammates - I played together with Jean-Kévin Augustin in Paris, and know Dayot Upamecano and Nordi Mukiele from the France U21s. As a result, I'm optimistic that I can quickly find my feet here," Nkunku said, as quoted by the club.

RB Leipzig sporting director Markus Krösche said:

"With his ability, Christopher Nkunku fits our profile very well. He's a dynamic and versatile player in attack, and can bring a lot of variety to our game. We're pleased that such a highly-talented attacking player has decided to join us, and we're convinced that he will help us with his quality."

'Die Roten Bullen' have reportedly paid around €13 million to sign the central midfielder.
