Everton Joins United Liverpool in Chukwueze Chase
22-year-old Samuel Chukwueze played 40 games for Villarreal last season and scored four goals. He provided eight assists as he wins their first-ever Europa League title.
This is not the first time Chukwueze has been linked with a Premier League move. Everyeveryng gathered that both Manchester United and Liverpool had shown interest in the player before now.
Now according to the report, Everton has also thrown their hat into the ring. Either way, it seems the in-demand wide man is likely to depart Unai Emery’s set-up this summer. However, clubs may have to fork out a hefty price as Chukwueze has a whopping £71million release clause in his contract, which doesn’t expire until 2023.
