Samuel Chukwueze has been eyed by Everton as a possible signing, with many other Premier League clubs interested, according to 90min.
As per the news outlet, the Nigeria international is considering his future with Villarreal, with a whole host of teams from the top flight queuing up for his services.
Would Chukwueze be a good signing for Everton?
The publication states that Liverpool, Wolves, Manchester United, Chelsea and Leicester City as well as the Goodison Park faithful are all interested in signing him, but he has a release clause in excess of £80m that may put some suitors off.
Nonetheless, Chukwueze could still prove to be a quality addition to the Merseyside club should they manage to get his signature over the line.
Chukwueze has received high praise
Indeed, Chukwueze has received some vey high praise indeed from some established football players.
FC Barcelona legend and former Toffee Samuel Eto’o branded him as an ‘incredible’ player while former Super Eagles star Mutiu Adepoju tweeted that he is ‘exciting’ to watch after he impressed in a La Liga game versus Celta Vigo back in June.
Chukwueze has been great this season
Indeed, Chukwueze has had a great start to the 2020/21 term in the Spanish top flight. The 21-year old has won a rather impressive 3.8 of his duels per game so far, and has also averaged 1.3 key passes and 1.1 successful dribbles per match (Sofascore).
Perhaps a winger like him is exactly what Carlo Ancelotti needs, but the Blues may have to cough up a lot of money and beat a lot of competition if they want to get this deal done.
