Nigerian forward Samuel Chukwueze has been at the center of transfer rumors for a while now, as he seeks a move away from Castellon. The President of Villarreal, Fernando Roig, has revealed more about Chukwueze’s situation, stating that the player wants to leave the club. However, Villarreal is yet to receive an official bid from any club.
Chukwueze’s contract with Villarreal is set to expire at the end of next season, and the player has refused to sign an extension, putting his future in the balance. There have been talks that the 24-year-old is eyeing a move to the Premier League, with Real Madrid also in the conversation for his signature. However, the Spanish giants do not seem prepared to make a move for the left-footed winger.
AC Milan, Arsenal, Aston Villa, and Newcastle have also been linked with Chukwueze, but the President of Villarreal has confirmed that the club is yet to receive an offer for the Nigerian forward. Roig stated that Chukwueze is looking forward to playing for a big club in Europe or the Premier League, and if an offer comes, they will sit down to negotiate.
Chukwueze’s brilliance last season, where he registered 24 goal contributions, has seen his value rise to €25million according to Transfermarkt. However, Villarreal would demand way more than that if they are to let go of the talented forward.
In conclusion, Chukwueze’s future remains uncertain, but it is clear that the Nigerian forward wants to leave Villarreal. With several clubs interested in his services, it remains to be seen where he will end up come the start of the new season. Nonetheless, Chukwueze’s talent is undeniable, and whichever club he ends up at, they will be getting a top-class player.
