A reunion between Samuel Chukwueze and Spanish football tactician Unai Emery could be on the cards if transfer reports emanating from the English press are anything to go by.
Chukwueze is among three Villarreal players ex-Villarreal boss Emery is interested in bringing to Aston Villa, the others being Nicolas Jackson and Yeremi Pino, according to Daily Star, via Birmingham Live.
The 24-cap Nigeria international has consistently been linked with a move to the English top-flight since his breathtaking performance at the 2015 FIFA U-17 Men's World Cup.
