Man City eye Nkunku: Versatility makes him a proper talent

What makes Nkunku more than just a Champions League talent, is that he can offer top-tier quality from numerous areas on the pitch.

Nkunku has played all over the park for Leipzig. At times under Julian Nagelsmann, he was used as a wing-back. He can play midfield, too.

But he is best used as a no.10, which he is proving this season with his 12 goal involvements in 10 games. But he can play on either flank, too.

His immense ability from set-pieces is also something that would improve Manchester City. Marca say he is rated at £36.75million.
