Villarreal Coach Emery Fears Chukwueze May Undergo Surgery On Groin Injury
Speaking at a press conference on Tuesday ahead of his side's La Liga clash against Granada, Villarreal coach Unai Emery fears that Samuel Chukwueze may require surgery on a groin injury.

The Nigeria international is rated as doubtful for Wednesday's tie at the Estadio de la CerĂ¡mica as he has not been involved in the last training sessions held by the Yellow Submarine due to discomfort.

Villarreal's medical team will now make a final decision over whether the 2015 U17 World Cup winner goes under the knife in the coming days.

Providing a fitness update on the squad, Emery told reporters : " We still have Chukwueze, who has groin discomfort that has been dragging on for a while and we are at a time when the player has stopped.

"We are studying the decision of whether to stop for him to have a small operation or to continue playing. Coquelin played normally and Moi is available for tomorrow. The rest is OK".

This season, Chukwueze has featured in 17 matches in the Spanish top-flight, scoring one goal and registering three assists.
