He was the Italian League top-scorer last season and is also now the African player with the highest number of goals in Italy’s top-flight history. With the current state of the transfer market, the 24-year-old will command a good few should Napoli decide to cash on their striker.
The Villarreal midfielder is still young at just 24 years of age and has long years ahead of him in professional football. Chukwueze has been a good player for Villareal these immediate past years.

He has been one of the most important players for the Merseyside Club since joining the club in the summer of 2019. He’s currently playing for one of the traditional clubs in English football history and he should command a considerable fee in case his club needs some cash.
