Nigeria U-17 World Cup winner Samuel Chukwueze is presently in Spain holding talks with La-Liga side Villarreal, Owngoalnigeria.com can exclusively reveal.
Chukwueze was expected to join Arsenal alongside Kelechi Nwakali but his move fell through despite manager Arsene Wenger confirming that Arsenal have agreed a deal for him.
He was rumoured to have joined Portuguese side FC Porto, but a change in the technical set up of the team claimed his proposed move to the team despite spending time with their U-18s last year.
Owngoalnigeria.com can reveal that the forward who finished as one of the top scorer as Nigeria romped to another U-17 World Cup title in Chile in 2015.
If talks with the team progresses as expected he will join his former colleague at the U-17 and 20 team of Nigeria Jack Ipalibo at the La-Liga side.
