Ouest-France report today that Ligue 1 side Rennes are closing in on a deal to sign French youth international and PSG midfielder Christopher Nkunku.
The 21-year-old’s contract with Les Parisiens expires in just over 12 months time and he was played 19 times in Ligue 1 this season, with 3 goals and 2 assists to show for it.
Several meetings have occurred in recent weeks between the player’s clan, i.e. his agent José Pierre-Farfan and Rennes President Olivier Létang.
A source in the Brittany side’s camp even told the outlet that an agreement “is very close” to bring Nkunku to Rennes on a permanent deal.
