Player Review

Christopher Nkunku is an attacking midfielder or winger for RB Leipzig. Nkunku won Ligue 1 with PSG three times playing alongside Mbappe and Neymar, but due to a lack of game time he moved to RB Leipzig for a fee of £11.70 million. This has turned out to be an excellent piece of business from Leipzig. Nkunku scored with his first touch in the Bundesliga and then went on to score 5 goals and provide 15 assists in 32 Bundesliga appearances, contributing with a goal once every 91.6 minutes. Nkunku provided 4 assists against Schalke and hit a very high PB score of 297 and as Nkunku frequently takes corners and also free-kicks, he certainly has a strong chance of providing assists often in the future. Nkunku suits the PB matrix fairly well, averaging 2.34 shots per 90, a very high 3.44 key passes per 90 and attempting a high 5.71 crosses per 90. In addition to Nkunku's creativity in attack, he posseses rapid pace and a strong dribbling ability averaging a high 58.7% success rate on his 3.79 attempted dribbles per 90. Overall, Nkunku looks set to earn match day dividends in the future, but may be held back at points throughout the season due to RB Leipzig's frequent squad rotation.

Price Analysis

Christopher Nkunku's price started the 2019-2020 season at just £0.90. Nkunku's performances improved throughout last season and he hit a peak price of £3.36 in April 2020. Since then, his price has dropped considerably as his form dropped toward the backend of last season. Nkunku has started the 2020-2021 season in fairly strong form with two PB scores over 200 already and at the current market price of £1.95, he does appear a very valuable hold. Furthermore, Nkunku has a wide spread with an instant sell price of £1.47. There is currently very strong value throughout the market and Nkunku may be purchased at below £1.50 via matched bids. Longer term, Nkunku's price is likely to rise as he has a strong chance of earning match day dividends. However, his price may well fluctuate throughout the season depending on squad rotation. Overall, Nkunku does appear a valuable hold but, it would certainly be worth buying via matched bids at under £1.50.
