Samu Chukwueze: Villarreal’s 40 million euro jewel


Villarreal winger Samu Chukwuezecould be one of his side’s most valuable assets and, fortunately for the Yellow Submarine, they tied him up to a new contract last summer that included a 40 million euro release clause.

The Nigerian impressed with his performance against Barcelona on Tuesday night, showing off his skills against Clement Lenglet, who at times could not contain his opponent.

Speed, agility and wonderful technique are just some of the skills that Chukwuezedemonstrated on the Estadio de la Ceramica pitch against the league leaders.

Villarreal managed to beat teams such as Porto and Monaco to secure the 19-year-old’s signature back in 2017, signing him for just 500,000 euros, and the winger has contributed seven goals in all competitions this season. 

His agent has already informed the club of the potential interest from several Premier League clubs, but Villarreal are eager to retain his services for the next campaign.
