Stamford Bridge Samuel Chukwueze

Super Eagles star, Samuel Chukwueze, is being linked with a switch to Premier League campaigners Chelsea in the January transfer window.

According to The UK Telegraph, the Blues boss Frank Lampard has a transfer budget of £150m to splash out in the coming window and is eyeing offensive players.

The Villarreal star is believed to be on the list of wingers being targeted by Lampard.

Others include Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho, Crystal Palace’s Wilfried Zaha and Bayer Leverkusen’s Leon Bailey.

Chukwueze, who has a release clause of €63m, was close to moving to the Premier League in 2017 to play for Arsenal before he opted for Villarreal.
