Samuel Chukwueze could become club teammate with Alex Iwobi, as new Everton manager Rafa Benitez is reportedly keeping tabs on the Villarreal winger.
Chukwueze, 22, played 40 games for Villarreal last season, scoring four times and providing eight assists.
He played a key role in Villarreal’s run to the final of last season’s Europa League, but missed the clash with Manchester United (which the Spanish club won on penalties) after suffering a groin injury in the second leg semi-final victory over Arsenal.
This is not the first time Chukwueze has been linked with a Premier League move. Both Manchester United and Liverpool are said to be keen on the youngster.
According to The Athletic, Everton have 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.
La Razon, though, have mooted that Villarreal are unlikely to receive the full sum for the exciting winger.
