Liverpool join Arsenal in race for Chukwueze

Liverpool have joined Arsenal in the race to land Nigeria’s Villarreal winger, Samuel Chkwueze, according to reports.

The 23 year old Nigerian has long been on the radar of Premier League clubs ever since he begun to make an impact in the Villareal senior ranks in 2018-19.

The Nigeria international has gone on to make a total of 178 appearances in all competitions, contributing 29 goals and 26 assists.

However, Chukwueze has received far less game time during 2022-23, making just five starts in La Liga with a further eight outings coming from the substitutes’ bench.

The 23-year-old has also chipped in with just one assist in Spain’s top flight, his performances instead being more effective in the Europa Conference League where he

has scored twice in five starts.

Nevertheless, Chukwueze is now at a stage in his Yellow Submarine career where he has decisions to make with regards to his future, likewise with his club.

The attack has just over 18 months remaining on his contract, leaving Villarreal aware that they may have to be open to any lucrative offers for his signature.
According to Fichajes, Liverpool are giving consideration to making an approach for Chukwueze at some point during 2023.

West Ham United and Everton are also reported to be monitoring any developments with Chukwueze’s future over the coming weeks.

Earlier this month, it was suggested that Aston Villa, now managed by former Villarreal boss Unai Emery, could also move for Chukwueze, although that was before Villa

recorded back-to-back league wins over Manchester United and Brighton & Hove Albion.
