This is what Football Manager says about Nigerian winger joining Liverpool

Nigerian winger Samuel Chukwueze has been a major topic of discussion in the transfer news.

He has been linked to many clubs in England and accross Europe, but most notably is Liverpool.

The 20-year-old has scored five goals and two goals in 19 La Liga appearances this season, in what has been a struggling Villarreal team, so those numbers are better than they seem.

he 20-year-old's best position is on the right side of the pitch, where he can cut inside with his stronger left foot, according to Football Manager 2019.

However, he can also play on the left side, as a number 10 or even as a central striker.

Chukwueze's is a lively wide player with great dribbling, speed and flair, but his low finishing (11) and passing (11) attributes mean that he still has a lot to work on in terms of end product.

The winger has a current ability of 120/200 on Football Manager 2019. To put that into context, that means he is rated lower than Reds youngster Ben Woodburn (126) on FM right now.

However, he has been given a potential ability rating of -85, which means he could potentially reach a current ability level of 170/200. This would make him almost as good as the likes of Sadio Mane (173) and Roberto Firmino (172).

Football Manager 2019 says that Chukwueze is a brilliant long-term prospect, who has the potential to be a star player for Liverpool in the future, should they decide to sign him.
