As first reported by Owngoalnigeria.com Villarreal teen sensation Samuel Chukwueze has made the step up to the first team of the LaLiga side who are presently having their pre season training ahead of the start of next season.
Chukwueze was rewarded for his sterling performance with the B team of the club with a spot in the pre season squad of the first team with the club also keen on signing him on a long term contract.
The failed Arsenal target joined the LaLiga side a little over a year ago and his promotion through the ranks from the U18s to the first team has been remarkable considering he only made the step up to the B team two months ago.
Pictured running at the camp of Villarreal with former Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla running alongside him, the 19 year old who was few details away from joining Arsenal said he is still in dreamland training alongside the 33 year old.
” It’s a dream come true for me. I watched him a lot while he was at Arsenal and today I’m training with him in the same team. I can’t describe the feeling. He is my role model and I am running alongside him. I can’t explain how I’m feeling “, he told Owngoalnigeria.com in an exclusive chat.
