One of Villarreal’s hottest prospects Samuel Chukwueze has been garnering glittering reviews in Spain this season from the right wing, assisting four and scoring the same number – form that has seen him linked to some of Europe’s elite in the next transfer window.
 
Talk specifically of a move to the Premier League has been doing the rounds in the gossip sections – with the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool reportedly keeping tabs on the winger, but could Chelsea be added to that list?
 
Blues fans were alerted via an Instagram Live chat, via Football London, that Samuel Chukwueze is claiming to be a lifelong fan of Chelsea, even admitting he cried after the Champions League final defeat in 2008;

Talking in an another interview, this time with Tribal Football, Samuel Chukwueze revealed that a deal was close to being done with London rivals Arsenal prior to signing with Villarreal;
