Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is keen on landing RB Leipzig playmaker next summer, according to Calciomercato.
The 23-year-old has been in exceptional form for the Bundesliga outfit this term, bagging nine goals and five assists from 13 games.
He has three years left on his existing deal, but reports claim that he could head for the exit door at the end of the campaign.
A number of elite European clubs are keeping tabs on him, and it is reported that the Gunners are weighing up a summer move.
Nkunku can play anywhere in midfield or in the number 10 role. Arteta is understood to be a huge admirer of his versatile qualities.
The midfielder was heavily linked with the north London club when he was at Paris Saint-Germain, but a deal never materialised.
He has since developed into a quality midfielder with a goal scoring presence, and he is bound to attract plenty of bids next summer.
