Nigerian international Samuel Chwukueze is reportedly eyed by six English clubs that includes giants like Man Utd and Liverpool.
It’s also said that Spanish champions Real Madrid have made the Nigerian a prime target but they face stiff competition from Man United who are proving to be their fiercest competitor.
The English clubs battling Real Madrid for the signature of the 21-year-old are Man Utd, Liverpool, Everton, Wolves, Chelsea and Leicester City.
Samu is one of the hottest prospects in the Spanish La Liga. Spanish Media Outlet, La Razon revealed that the Los Blancos are preparing a double swoop on Villarreal to sign both Chukwueze and teammate Pau Torres.
The report further states that Real Madrid are proposing €65million for the duo, as well as a player in exchange.
Manchester United have placed Samuel Chwukueze on their transfer list as he’d be a plan B if they fail to get Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho.
The Yellow Submarines value Samu highly and they’ve pegged the player’s release clause at €80m.
There are beliefs that he may be overpriced, saying the €80m price tag is too much for the lad, as he has not yet done enough to justify the fixed price.
In lieu of this, Madrid have proposed the idea of a player plus cash deal door Samuel Chwukueze and Pay Torres.
Villarreal would have the option of chosing between Reinier Jesus and Dani Ceballos plus cash.
In the ongoing campaign, Chukwueze has made 11 appearances for his club, scoring once and providing two assists.
