LAST MINUTE: Aston Villa looks at Villareal’s Chukwueze

Aston Villa are reportedly interested in signing Nigerian Samuel Chukwueze from Villareal, who was a former player under new Villa manager Unai Emery.

According to Team Talk, Chukwueze is one of three Villarreal players that Emery is trying to bring into the Premier League in January.

Chukuweze performed well while Emery was in charge at Villarreal contributing 30 goals in all competitions since Emery took over in 2020.

Emery, who won his first game for Villa 3-1 against Manchester United in the Premier League at the weekend, also tried to bring Chukwueze to Arsenal during his time as manager of the north London club.

The 23-year-old Nigerian international is a Villarreal regular and a key member behind the Yellow Submarine’s UEFA Europa League triumph in 2020 and their run to the UEFA Champions League semi-finals last season.
