According to a recent report by Foot Mercato (translated by the Liverpool Echo), Liverpool are keen on bringing Villarreal CF winger Samuel Chukwueze to Merseyside but will face stiff competition from Chelsea in pursuit of the player. It is believed that the Nigerian wide player has been on the Reds’ radar from quite some time now and has a release clause of £52m in his contract (via Foot Mercato).
Chukwueze’s Impressive Season At The Estadio de la Cerámica
The 20-year-old has enjoyed another fruitful campaign for the Yellow Submarine after putting in some eye-catching performances under Javier Calleja’s tutelage so far. He has made 18 appearances for the La Liga outfit this term, scoring three goals while providing three assists on all fronts.
The Diamond academy graduate has averaged 1.6 shots, 1.2 key passes and 2.0 dribbles per game in the Spanish top-flight (stats via whoscored). He has also earned 12 senior caps for the Nigerian national side and has registered two goals for his homeland thus far.
Chukwueze has established himself amongst the promising young players in Spain, so Liverpool will do well to land him in the future.
What Will The Nigerian Starlet Add To Klopp’s Side?
Chukwueze is blessed with blistering pace, which allows him to travel with the ball at high speed out on the wide areas. He is a very direct runner with the ball and doesn’t mind turning on the afterburners to beat his marker in the final third. However, the Nigerian whizkid can be a bit wasteful at times in front of the opposition goal.
As long as Chukwueze can find a way to improve his productivity with each season, he is destined to become a world-class player in his position someday. The Reds can benefit from acquiring a winger of Chukwueze’s skill set as he will be an ideal back-up for Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah at Anfield.
Furthermore, the Nigerian sensation will also bolster Jurgen Klopp’s squad depth significantly, which will help the Merseyside giants compete for multiple trophies in the coming years. Therefore, the European champions should consider making a move to land Chukwueze at the end of this season.
