Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea are all deeming a summer move winger. Liverpool already made a bid for him.
Premier League giants- Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea are all deeming a summer move winger for Villarreal winger Samuel Chukwueze.
As Villarreal value Chukwueze roughly £60million. He began playing football at the age of 8 and he admired Jay-Jay Okocha as his football hero. The 20-year-old is an extremely promising talent. He is a Nigerian international. And that could work against him. After the announcement that the Africa Cup of Nations. Which will revert back to it’s January format? Hosted by Cameroon next year.
Lionel Messi put him third in his poll for the Kopa Trophy. An award for players below the age of 21 and he finished ninth in the voting poll.
As a youngster, he starred in the 2015 under-17 World Cup. Scoring seven goals in seven games as Nigeria has finished as champions. His style is similar to Arjen Robben.
Battle for his Signature
According to France Football, Liverpool bid €35m in January window. He has been considered as good initial cover for Mo Salah who plays on the right flank of LFC’s energetic attack.
Jürgen Klopp apparently feels well-equipped in other areas. The January arrival of Takumi Minamino as a backup for Roberto Firmino. Whilst Divock Origi and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are good covers for Sadio Mané. As per the report, in Klopp’s mind.
His entrance would have allowed Xherdan Shaqiri to leave. There were some rumours that the Swiss international could be on his way out and. If true, a move for Chukwueze would make sense of those. Best treat it all with a strong dose of skepticism. Liverpool will not sign any £100M-plus superstars. With Jürgen Klopp prolonging to prioritize keeping the current squad together.
The bid was rejected by Villarreal. They are waiting for Chukwueze’s £55m release clause to be fulfilled. Villarreal are preparing themselves for a transfer scrap for his signature.
He had a crucial role in Nigeria’s U17 World Cup triumph. Chukwueze has progressed into a vital first-team player for Villarreal. Chelsea, Lyon and Man City are among those said to be inspecting the winger. Given it’s a French publication, covering a Nigerian player at a Spanish team. Linked to English Clubs. There might be nothing at all to it.
