He was initially assigned to the club’s Juvenile A squad, but it didn’t take long before he made his breakthrough and was promoted to the reserves and then to the first team.

Chukwueze scored eight goals in 38 matches in all competitions in his first season at the elite level. The Super Eagles winger managed four goals in 41 games in the following campaign before netting five times in 40 matches last term as Villarreal ended as the Europa League champions.

Villarreal manager Unai Emery is not convinced that Chukwueze fits his plans in the future, and the former Arsenal manager is open to letting the 22-year-old leave.

As per ElgolDigital, the money raised from his potential sale will fund the acquisition of PSG midfielder Pablo Sarabia.
