According to trusted transfer website, Fichajes, English Premier League leaders Arsenal have joined the race in the battle for Nigeria international Samuel Chukwueze.
The Gunners are in the market for a backup for England star Bukayo Saka on the right side, with the inexperienced Marquinhos also seeking a loan move away from the Emirates Stadium.
Mikel Arteta has, however, identified Chukwueze, a player who has plenty of experience at the top level at a young age, a smart move but the Gunners boss will face stiff competition from Unai Emery, Chukwueze’s former boss in Spain, who recently joined Aston Villa following the sacking of Steven Gerrard.
“Arsenal, Aston Villa and Everton could wage a battle for the signature of Samuel Chukwueze, who has the characteristics to succeed in the Premier League,” the website wrote.
Chukwueze is an exciting young winger who came through the Villarreal youth team and has already made 24 appearances playing for the Super Eagles at just 23.
