Video: Who is Arsenal target Samuel Chukwueze?

Arsenal are currently being linked with a move to sign Villareal’s Samuel Chukwueze, but those who don’t follow the Spanish top tier may know very little about the winger.

The 20 year-old is already a fully-fledged international for Nigeria, with two senior goals in his 13 outings thus far, as well as emerging as a first-team regular in La Liga at club level.

His impressive dribbling and close ball control are amazing, added to the pace and long-passing ability that he also possesses, and you have a star in the making.

The speedster supposedly has a €63 Million release clause in his contract, which will likely need to be triggered in order to sign him this summer, while Chelsea, Manchester United and even Real Madrid have also been linked.

As you will see below, he has all the makings to be a top player in the near future, but whether our club will see him as a priority signing is another matter.

With our club having splashed out a record fee to bring in Nicolas Pepe last summer, I struggle to believe we will be investing the supposed fee for another winger in the coming window, but Chukwueze certainly looks like he would repay the fee over the coming years if we were to make the jump.

Should Arsenal do what it takes to sign the Nigerian? Is he ready to make an immediate impact in the Premier League?

    How clubs handle the post Covid19 Premier league landscape will be fascinating.
    If 350k p/w Ozil Precovid19 was unsellable what chance some one coming for him now?
    Bellerin Mustafi Lacazette Torreira mentioned as transfer candidates will see their sale price drop at least 50%. We can only give away the likes of Luiz or Socritis on their salaries..
    Many players will decide to run down their contracts at safe Arsenal then go on free transfers in seasons to come to get a decent retirement salary at their last club.
    So what do we do with Mkhitarian the over the hill 31 year old on 177k p/w wanting to run down his contract to get a retirement package?
    Selling Mkhi, for even 7m and getting his 8m salary off the books rather than lose him on a free would be a major coup. But I think its already too late like Ramsey the Mkhitarian horse has bolted.
    Ramsey 2 will be followed by Ramsey 3,4,5,6,7 with little or nothing we can do about it.
    Good luck to Barcelona trying to get any one to pay 100m each for Coutinho and Dembele 🙂
    Lots of “top” players available to be loaned .
    Mind you every one is in the same boat and fans, players, owners and managers will have Covid19 as the go to excuse for a couple of years.
    “Present” salaries just took on a whole new meaning 🙂
    Football also just become a whole lot more interesting .
