Aston Villa, a club in the Premier League, will make an effort in January to poach Samuel Chukwueze from Villarreal.

Before Unai Emery, manager of Aston Villa, relocated back to England a few weeks ago, he and Chukwueze worked together at Villarreal.

Chelsea and Liverpool have also pursued the Nigerian international, but Emery is eager to reunite with him.

Aston Villa are reportedly willing to offer €40m to sign the speedy winger, as reported by Football Insider via TMW.

Villarreal may consider selling Chukwueze in the upcoming January transfer window.

In 2017, the Yellow Submarine paid €500,000 to acquire the player from Diamond Football Academy.

According to reports, the 23-year-old came very close to completing a deadline-day loan deal to Everton last summer, but talks broke down just before the transfer window closed.
