Villareal winger Samuel Chukwueze has named Chelsea as his favourite team in the Premier League.

The Nigerian has been linked with a move to Premier League clubs including Chelsea and Liverpool who reportedly had a bid turned down in January.

However, it seems Chelsea stand a big chance of winning the race for his signature if they go after him in the future after the youngster admitted that Chelsea was his favourite club in the Premier League.

“My favourite team in England is Chelsea,” Chukwueze said in an Instagram live chat with the Nigeria Football Federation media team on Friday, quoted by The Athletic Nigeria.

“I was supporting Chelsea when I was young. When Chelsea lost that Champions League final against Manchester United (2007/08), I was crying all through the night.”

If Chelsea fail to sign Jadon Sancho this summer, a move for Samuel Chukwueze could be on the card as a replacement for departing Willian or Pedro.
