Chelsea are ready to firm up their interest in Samuel Chukwueze by making a bid for the 2015 U17 World Cup winner, according to reports.
Berlin-based media company, Onefootball, claims the English Premier League club are planning to make an offer for the 20-year-old and manager Frank Lampard wants him in his squad for the 2020-2021 season.
Chukwueze won't come cheap though as he has a release clause of 100 million euros (approximately N41 billion) which has to be activated before the Yellow Submarine can shred their agreement with the Nigeria international.
The Villarreal winger has made 68 first-team appearances for his side since debuting in September 2018.
