Everton hoping to sign Nigerian forward: A good option for Sean Dyche?

Everton Football Club is reportedly eyeing Samuel Chukwueze, the talented Nigerian forward from Villarreal. Despite having a €100 million release clause in his contract, Everton remains hopeful that they can secure his services in the summer transfer window. The Toffees are aware that avoiding relegation is crucial to make the transfer a possibility.

Chukwueze has had an impressive season for Villarreal, scoring 13 goals and providing 11 assists in 40 matches across all competitions. The 23-year-old is considered one of the best right-wingers in Nigeria, and he has also made a mark in international football with four goals in 24 senior appearances for the Nigerian national team.

His recent performance against Real Madrid has caught the attention of the Premier League clubs, with Parrado claiming that “Half the Premier League loved him, the latest one was Everton.” Chukwueze has already won the Nigeria Football Federation’s 2018 Young Player of the Year award.


Everton’s interest in Chukwueze indicates their ambition to strengthen their attacking line-up in the coming season. However, securing his services will not be easy as other Premier League clubs are also keeping an eye on him.
