Manchester United are reportedly keeping a close eye on the progress of Villarreal and Nigerian winger Samuel Chukwueze.

The 21-year-old has bagged a combined 12 goals and assists in the previous two seasons and his performances have been closely tracked by several European clubs.

Arsenal, Everton and Chelsea have previously been linked with his services and 90 mins claims that the Red Devils are the latest side, who are keeping tabs on his progress.

Chukwueze recently ended a 12-month goal drought by opening the scoring against Real Valladolid on Monday night. Villarreal eventually won the game by a 2-0 scoreline.

He has been compared to Arjen Robben for his style of play and he was on the radar of the Blues earlier this summer before they pursued Kai Havertz from Bayer Leverkusen.

His contract currently has a release clause worth £80m, but it has been claimed in the past that the Yellow Submarines could sanction his sale for around half the price.
