7 Best Young Forwards In Europe This Season

6. Christopher Nkunku (22, RB Leipzig)

Another young gun making waves in the Bundesliga, Christopher Nkunku is arguably the breakout star of his team.

He might have scored only four times thus far, but what he's actually come to be known for, is his prolific ability to lay assists. The 22-year old has assisted 14 times in the Bundesliga so far, trailing only Bayern Munich's Thomas Muller who has 16.

He recently made headlines for his haul of four-assists in the game to Schalke, making him only the second player to register such a feat since Opta started collecting data.

Nkunku has also drawn attention for his electric speed and buccaneering runs down the flanks that have yielded chance after chance for the Red Bulls. He has taken defences apart with some neat footwork, and also possesses an eye for goal.
