Liverpool, Chelsea battle to sign Nigerian footballer

English Premier League clubs; Liverpool and Chelsea battle to break the transfer record for an African player to sign Nigerian international winger Samuel Chukwueze this summer.

According to Spanish sports daily Marca, the 20-year-old Chukwueze has played 64 official games for Villarreal’s first team, scoring 12 goals with seven assists to his name.

The winger now has a release clause of 100 million euros (approximately N39 billion).

According to French publication, France Football, Liverpool attempted to sign Chukwueze in January with an offer of 35 million euros which was swiftly rejected by the Spanish club but if interested clubs like Liverpool and Chelsea break the bank to sign Chukwueze for 100 million Euros, he will become the most expensive African footballer in history, surpassing Arsenal’s Nicolas Pépé signed for 80m Euros in August 2019.

However, Chukwueze has a contract with Villareal till June 30, 2023, and has been a massive revelation since he broke out into the scene, attracting the attention of European heavyweight clubs.

  1. My advise to the Nigerian footballer Chukwueze is that he should discuss with his manager in-depth before signing a deal with any of the teams.

  2. My advice as a well wisher is to go with Liverpool if the deal were to go through. Liverpool should be a good sign.
