Liverpool FC transfer news: Reds target Samuel Chukwueze wants to play in the Premier League
The Villarreal youngster has bagged eight goals and three assists in all competitions for the La Liga side, and the report adds that Manchester City are also interested in Chukwueze.
The Nigerian spoke to Tribal Football (h/t Daily Mail) about wanting to play in the Premier League:
“Playing in England is still an ambition for me.
“I need to keep on working hard and to keep improving. I really want to play in England.”
Chukwueze also spoke about his failed move to Premier League rivals Arsenal. The winger claimed that the deal was close to completion but the two sides could not finalise on the financials:
“It was very close for me to sign for Arsenal, almost had the contract in my hands. Unfortunately, it did not work out fine with my academy due to the side of agreement and payment. They did not agree with the terms of the contract.”
