Wolves manager Nuno Espirito has been tracking the player development of Villarreal winger Samuel Chukwueze.
Chukwueze being tracked
The 21-year-old is a highly-rated individual who has been praised by former Barcelona superstar Samuel Eto’o, describing him as an ‘incredible player’ (via Goal).
The same publication also likened him to the great Dutch winger Arjen Robben with his electric pace and his deadly end product.
According to 90min, Wolves have been keeping tabs on the Nigerian winger, with many other top clubs also tracking his progress.
Liverpool and Arsenal have been included in the mix, with France Football reporting back in February that Jurgen Klopp’s side failed with a £29m bid for the Nigeria international.
Rated at £22.5m, Chukwueze has scored 13 goals and provided 11 assists for El Submarino Amarillo – a club where he has spent his entire professional career to date (TransferMarkt).
Transfer Tavern take
If Nuno Espirito Santo managed to get his hands on Chukwueze, it would be a stunning signing considering the competition that will have fought off to get his man.
Receiving praise from the likes of Eto’o just shows what sort of player he is. Under the right manager, he could easily become a world-class asset.
Under Nuno’s leadership, Chukwueze would help Wolves dramatically and significantly bolster their attacking reinforcements.
