Liverpool are being linked with Villarreal youngster Samuel Chukwueze – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter have responded by claiming they would love to see him at Anfield in the future.
According to Spanish publication La Razon, there is a wave of Premier League interest in the 21-year-old La Liga star.
It is understood that Liverpool are joined by Everton, Leicester City, Chelsea and Wolverhampton Wanderers as teams that would be prepared to bid for the attacker, plus Spanish giants Real Madrid are also credited with interest.
The report explains that plenty of teams are lining up a deal for him and he’s got a release clause of £71million which Villarreal could point any suitors towards.
A selection of Liverpool supporters on social media believe that Chukwueze could be a hit on Merseyside, albeit they wouldn’t want the club to fork out £70million-plus on him.
The Nigerian right-winger is certainly not the finished article yet, but he’s started the season with one goal and three assists in 11 games across all competitions.
He is a speed machine that is electric in the final this with his directness and looks like he could be a perfect fit for the Premier League.
One slight issue may be there is already a wave of options for Reds boss Jurgen Klopp in his squad, as he’s got the likes of Sadio Mane, Diogo Jota, Mohamed Salah, Xherdan Shaqiri and Takumi Minamino vying for starting positions in the forward line.
Here are some Reds fans discussing Chukwueze:
