Nigerian winger Samuel Chukwueze would be a great signing for Premier League club, Aston Villa, according to analyst, Pete O’Rourke, reports PNO Sports.

Chukwueze has been tipped to reunite with former Villarreal manager, Unai Emery at the Villa Park.

Emery recently took charge at the Midlands club and is reportedly looking to raid his former club with Chukwueze among the targets.

The duo also enjoyed a good relationship during Emery’s time in charge of the Yellow Submarine.

“When you get a new manager at a club they always look to sign players that they have worked with before and know.

“Chukwueze would be one of those that Emery trusts for Villa,” O’Rourke told Football FanCast.

“He is looking to improve Aston Villa’s attacking output, and Chukwueze would definitely add to them.

“He’s a tricky winger who can score goals and provide goals.

“He’s someone who would definitely add some pace to the Villa attack as well.”

The 23-year-old moved to Villarreal from Diamond Football Academy in 2018.

The pacy winger has scored 14 goals and 15 assists in 94 appearances across all competitions for Villarreal.

Chukwueze, who currently has two years remaining on his contract is valued around €20m.
