Villarreal have made it clear that they are open to the idea of letting Samuel Chukwueze leave the club this summer if the right offer comes along. Fernando Roig Negueroles, a board member at the club, has stated that they would not stand in the way of the Nigerian winger, should he desire to join one of Europe’s top sides. This news has sparked interest from several clubs, including Liverpool, Arsenal, and AC Milan.
AC Milan seems to be leading the race for Chukwueze’s signature, with reports suggesting that they have already held discussions with the player’s representatives. The winger has proven his worth this season, having scored 13 goals and provided 11 assists in all competitions. He is valued at 25 million euros.
Roig Negueroles described Chukwueze as an “extraordinary boy” and acknowledged his desire to compete for a big club in Europe or the Premier League. However, he also mentioned that the club would need to assess the offers from all parties involved, as no concrete proposals have been received thus far.
Chukwueze joined Villarreal in 2018 as a teenager, following his success in the FIFA U17 World Cup with Nigeria. The Super Eagles winger has only one year left on his contract with the Yellow Submarines.
- In conclusion, it remains to be seen where Chukwueze will end up this summer, but it is clear that he has attracted the attention of several top clubs. Villarreal’s willingness to let him leave if the right offer comes along is a sign that they value their player’s aspirations and potential.
