Manchester United fans are beginning to get giddy over RB Leipzig forward Christopher Nkunku.
The Frenchman has been in incredible form for RB Leipzig this season.
On Thursday night, his two goals against Atalanta secured the German side’s place in the Europa League semi-finals as they won the second leg 2-0.
Nkunku’s tally for the season now stands at 30 goals and that has led to him being linked with a move to Old Trafford in the summer.
Reports from Germany have long suggested that interim manager Ralf Rangnick is a big admirer of the Leipzig star. That means he could easily offer him as a suggestion to incoming manager Erik ten Hag.
Here’s what United fans said on Twitter after watching Nkunku bag a brace against Atalanta:
Christopher Nkunku would be the perfect signing for Erik Ten Haag at @ManUtd

You look at Nkunku’s ridiculous output this season and can completely understand why Rangnick was baffled by the fact that #MUFC didn’t have him on their list. Not even a striker but he has 43 goal involvements in 45 games this season. Madness. Gonna cost a pretty penny for sure.

🔴 Christopher Nkunku.
Yep, I want Man Utd to grab him!
Multi-functional forward. Can play wide, central and most importantly can travel with the ball.
Just scored two for Leipzig tonight after winning POTM award.
At 24, the perfect age for #MUFC. #UEL pic.twitter.com/qHg9JIakKM

What a talent Nkunku is! His ability to make runs and find spaces is top draw! Would love to see him as a false 9 at #MUFC #EuropaLeague #ATARBL @c_nk97
