Aston Villa has offered Forty million Euros to Villarreal to acquire the service of Super Eagles winger, Samuel Chukwueze.
The Nigeria international has been with the Yellow Submarines since moving to Europe, following his brilliance at the 2015 FIFA u17 World Cup
Chukwueze has been a subject of interest from Aston Villa since the English side appointed former Arsenal boss Unai Emery as the manager.
Unai Emery and Chukwueze worked together at Villarreal before the tactician returned to the Premier League a few weeks ago.
And the two could be reunited at Villa Park, with Aston Villa keen to back Emery up with funds to make meaningful additions to the squad in January.
A largely successful five-year spell in Spain has seen Chukwueze develop into one of the most exciting wingers in La Liga.
Chukwueze was reportedly close to making a deadline-day loan move to Everton in the summer but negotiations stalled at the crucial moments.
