Arsenal, Leicester Chase Nigerian midfielder

Two of English Premier League clubs, Arsenal and Leicester City have shown a keen interest in signing Super Eagles midfielder, Samuel Chukwueze during the January transfer window.

Chukwueze, who is capable of playing on either flank, has become an integral part of the Villareal club, having made 13 appearances this season, scoring four goals in La Liga. 

He made his senior international debut in October where he dazzled with his pace and mesmerizing skills. 

Meanwhile, Villareal coach Luis Garcia is quoted as saying Chukwueze, who won the Under-17 World Cup in 2015 with Nigeria, is their “jewel”. 

“I was told about Chukwueze. He’s got speed, spark, he can dribble. He’s a jewel we have to take care of,” he said.
