 Is Nigeria's Young POTY Joining World Champions This Month? Liverpool Expert Provides Answer
Liverpool expert Paul Gorst does not think that the current Nigeria Football Federation Young Player of the Year, Samuel Chukwueze will join the European and world champions in the January transfer window amid speculations linking him with a transfer to Anfield.

Liverpool Echo journalist Gorst answered transfer questions from The Reds fans on Friday and touched on the subject of rumours linking the Villarreal youngster with a switch to Liverpool.

The likes of Chelsea and most recently Lyon have been credited with an interest in Chukwueze, who is valued in the region of sixty three million euros by his Spanish La Liga club.

Asked if Liverpool are making a move for Chukwueze this month, Gorst was quoted as saying by Liverpool Echo : "I don’t anticipate any more incomings to the senior side in January, but long-term, Chukwueze ticks a lot of boxes.

"He will be 21 in May, is capable of playing on both flanks and would surely accept being a back-up to Mane and Salah.

"He is not a name I have heard discussed privately but he certainly has a few things going his way. It won’t be January though."

Chukwueze is contracted to Villarreal until June 2023 and has 56 first-team games under his belt, scoring 11 goals.
