RB Leipzig striker Christopher Nkunku has provided fans with an update on his future, amid recent interest from Chelsea.
The 24-year-old grew up in Paris where he spent five years in the youth system of national champions Paris Saint-Germain.
Nkunku then progressed to the senior side, representing them for four years before moving to the Bundesliga on a five-year deal.
french journalist Hadrian Grenier took to his Twitter account to quote Nkunku discussing his future at a recent press conference.
“Paris is my home, the club of my heart” he said. “I haven’t closed any doors. Everything is possible in football.”
It was reported earlier this week that the 24-year-old was ‘hesitant’ to sign a contract extension with RB Leipzig due to the interest shown in the foreign player.

Thomas Tuchel has long been an admirer of the player and reports have said he was on their minds ahead of the summer transfer window.
The Guardian has selected five attacking players that Thomas Tuchel is eyeing before the summer, including Nkunku.
Other options include Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling, Lille’s Jonathan David and Benfica’s Darwin Nunez.
Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembele, who was linked with a move to west London in January, is also on the shortlist.
Should Nkunku leave, he would no doubt add flair to the Blues’ attack, having netted 20 goals and 15 assists in 34 Bundesliga appearances this season. In all competitions, he has registered 35 goals and 20 assists.
