Villarreal are preparing to open talks with winger Samuel Chukwueze over a new contract, according to Futbalgalore.com.ng.
Samu still has two years left on his existing deal but the Yellow Submarine are keen to reward the Nigeria international for a string of impressive performances since joining from Diamond Football Academy in 2017.
The skillful lad has been linked with Bayern Munich, Chelsea, Liverpool, Atletico Madrid, Arsenal and Barcelona in the past
In terms of style, he has been likened to Arjen Robben and has previously admitted to watching hours of clips of the former Bayern Munich star on YouTube, even before games, because the Dutchman is his main source of inspiration and is a ‘king’ and the ‘perfect player’ in his eyes.
He was part of the Nigeria squad that finished third in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations and was listed as one of UEFA’s 50 young players to watch in 2019/20 alongside the likes of Erling Haaland, Alphonso Davies, Ferran Torres, Sandro Tonali and Rhian Brewster.
