Villarreal coach Unai Emery has responded to speculation linking his club’s winger Samuel Chukwueze with a big money move to the Premier League.

Everton were among no fewer than six English top flight club’s supposedly in the frame for the 21-year-old’s signature along with Manchester United,Chelsea, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Leicester City and neighbours Liverpool.

Real Madrid are also rumoured to be in the mix but when quizzed by French-based Nigerian journalist Babatunde Ojora on the future of Chukwueze, All Nigeria Soccer quotes Emery as saying:

We are happy with Samuel Chukwueze, he’s growing up here with us and his performances are getting better little by little but above all we want to achieve with him our objectives with his skills, his capacity.

“He is young and he has a very good future and then trying to add his performances for our team, for the national team.

“Maybe in the future he can go to another league to grow up more but I think he’s very happy here with us, and every match with him is very important to try to get best performance with him.”
