Recent reports stemming from Spain have credited a number of Premier League sides with an interest in Samuel Chukwueze.

Who is Samuel Chukwueze?

Samuel Chukwueze has been on Villarreal’s books since 2017, after joining from the Nigerian Diamond Football Academy.

Following a brief stint with Villarreal’s B-team, Chukwueze has since gone on to firmly cement himself as a key figure in the Spanish outfit’s frontline.

All told, the Nigerian has notched 90 appearances for Villarreal, in which he has scored 13 and assisted 12.

The 14-time capped international is a right-winger by trade, but is also more than capable of lining out on the left-flank or, on occasion, through the middle.

Chukwueze has notched one goal and two assists in La Liga this season, with his latest key contribution having come this past weekend, in earning the Yellow Submarine a penalty during a 1-1 draw with Real Madrid:

On the back of a solid start to the campaign, Chukwueze now appears to be attracting interest from around Europe.

As per a recent report from Spanish outlet Larazon, Real Madrid ‘is thinking’ of Chukwueze, as they aim to rejuvenate the club’s attack.

However, Los Blancos will likely face considerable competition for the winger, as Larazon go on to add that Madrid are ‘willing to bid together with Manchester United, Leicester, Everton, Chelsea, Liverpool and Wolverhampton for Samu Chukwueze’.

Chukwueze has just under three years left on his current contract, which Larazon claim includes an €80m release clause.
