Liverpool: Transfer target Samuel Chukwueze has night to forget in Europe

Liverpool: Transfer target Samuel Chukwueze has night to forget in Europe - Liverpool Transfer Rumours

Liverpool have been linked with a move to sign Samuel Chukwueze for some time, with fresh reports even popping up this week, but he did not showcase why the Reds should sign him on Thursday night.

Chukwueze fails to impress

The 21-year-old started on the right-hand side of a flat attacking midfield three away to Maccabi Tel Aviv in the Europa League, which was encased in a 4-2-3-1 formation with Colombian striker Carlos Bacca playing the lone striker role.

Should Liverpool sign Samuel Chukwueze?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The game finished level at 1-1, with Chukwueze making way for Dani Parejo just after the hour mark, having been ineffective on the match’s outcome.

During the encounter, the Nigerian winger lost possession 12 times, did not make any crosses and only made one key pass (Sofascore). He simply had no threat whatsoever.

La Razon previously suggested that Chukwueze has a £71m release clause in his current deal at Villarreal, which is due to expire in 2023 (TransferMarkt).

Taking all of the above into consideration, this may deter Liverpool’s interests in the youngster. His huge price tag, inconsistency and the current economic climate could force the Reds to look elsewhere for attacking options.

And in other news, Liverpool over fans react jubilantly over official announcement concerning Jurgen Klopp’s key assets.
