Villarreal are ready to hold talks with Nigeria’s Super Eagles winger Samuel Chukwueze over a long term contract.
The player has been impressive for the Yellow Submarine outfit since making his debut last season, scoring twice and assisted once this term.
Spanish media reported that the Spanish La Liga side want to tie the youngster down to a longer deal with bigger buy out clause, in order to put off potential suitors.
Chukwueze has been constantly linked with a host of Premier League teams, with Liverpool reportedly requested for the player’s availability last summer.
The club’s representatives have now reportedly opened talks with Chukwueze’s representative for a contract that will see him earn bigger pay and also commit his future to the Club.
The 20-year-old was named young player of the year for both club and country last season following his impressive break out season.
He is on the list of the 49 young players nominated for the by Italian paper Tutto sports golden boy award.
Chukwueze, who is part of the Super Eagles squad that will take on Brazil in Singapore later this month has scored twice for the Yellow Submarines this season.
