Christopher Nkunku ends the season tied for the Bundesliga’s leading scorer with Niclas Füllkrug of Werder Bremen.
Chelsea-bound Christopher Nkunku completed his brace with an injury-time goal in Leipzig’s 4-2 win over relegated Schalke. He now has 16 league goals as a result.
Nkunku finishes the season as the league’s joint-top scorer alongside Werder Bremen’s Niclas Füllkrug.
The talented forward is expected to join Chelsea this summer, and given his history of injuries, his achievements is all the more remarkable.
With a torn knee ligament and a subsequent torn muscle fiber, Christopher Nkunku was out for a total of three months. He has nonetheless been able to fight Fullkrug punch for punch.
Nkunku will join Chelsea next season, but still has the DFB-Pokal Final first against Frankfurt on June 3.
