Premier League Clubs Join Race to Sign Samuel Chukwueze

Samuel Chukwueze has been linked with a sensational move from LaLiga giants Villarreal to the English Premier League.

The Super Eagles forward has been in good form for Villarreal this season and has contributed four goals in 12 appearances for the Yellow Submarines.

Chukwueze’s contract is set to wind down at the end of the season although Villarreal want to tie him down with a new improved contract and increase his release clause.

According to a report by Spanish media outlet Castellon Informationa, Chukwueze’s manager stated that they are keeping their options open.

He revealed in the report that the 19-year-old has attracted interest from England and a number of other countries but no decision has been made yet.

He said, “Many clubs are interested in signing Samu, but we will have a clearer idea of it in the New Year.”

Chukwueze who made his debut for the Super Eagles in a friendly match against Uganda at the Stephen Keshi Stadium in Asaba, Delta State, is expected to resume with Villarreal next year when they take on Real Madrid on Thursday, January 3, 2019.
