Chelsea fans have been left excited after comments from Samuel Chukwueze on a potential move to Stamford Bridge.
The Villarreal man professed his love for the Blues, though he did admit he doesn’t see himself leaving the La Liga side anytime soon (via Vanguardngr).
Do Chelsea need to replace Kepa?
Chukwueze has enjoyed a standout career with the Spanish side since making the move from the Diamond Academy, scoring 11 goals and assisting a further five in 52 appearances (via Transfermarkt).
However, the west London giants aren’t the only club seemingly interested in the 20-year-old with Premier League rivals Liverpool having also been linked with a move for the winger (via Goal).
Former Reds man Alberto Moreno sung the praises of his teammate, claiming he reminded him of Sadio Mane (via Marca).
Fans were left feeling joyous after the comments from Chukwueze as they took to Twitter to react, with some dubbing him as the successor to Arjen Robben.
Here is a selection of tweets from the west London faithful:
That’s fantastic news. I would assume it’s a ploy to get on our radar seeing as to how we’re in dire need of a right winger. He’s a top prospect, hope we at least make an effort for him this summer.

This shows that he’s interested in joining. No player is going to say I’d leave my club for them if they offered 😂. Still unsure about him tbh but we need a left footed attacker and he could be crucial

He looks like man wants us come on Chelsea

A left footed right winger. The Robben replacement is finally here.

@ChelseaFC Study this guy please. Looks like exactly what we need on the right to replace Robben after all these years
