Golden Eaglets forward at the Chile 2015 FIFA U-17 World Cup Samuel Chukwueze is the latest member of the conquering Nigerian side to be linked with European clubs following the team’s triumphant campaign where they won the U-17 title for a record fifth time.
Completesportsnigeria.com scoops from Nigerian scout Ifeanyi Elegbua Igwenjoku who owns Great Eleven Soccer Agency in Nigeria that English Premier League side, Everton; Spanish La Liga’s Malaga and Red Bull Salzburg in Austria are interested in Chukwueze.
Igwenjoku has a working relationship with Spain-based Sportsrocks Agency.
“Three clubs have enquired from my partners in Europe about Samuel Chukwueze,” he told Completesportsnigeria.com.
“The clubs are Everton from the English Premier League as well as Malaga in Spain and Red Bull Salzburg in Austria. The Austrian club in fact are discussing as we speak with my partners.
“We hope to get the best deal for Samuel. He is still a young player so we need to be sure that whichever club he ends up signing for is in his best interest.”
