Chukwueze on Chelsea radar for January transfer

Villarreal winger Samuel Chukwueze could be considered for a move to Stamford Bridge as Chelsea look to fortify their squad.

Telegraph.co.uk report that Chukwueze's name is among targets Chelsea's scouts have penned down for a possible transfer.

Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho, Wilfred Zaha who plays for Crystal Palace and Bayer Leverkusen’s Leon Bailey are also among the targets.

Asked in the past about Chelsea, Chukwueze said: “I was supporting Chelsea. I used to support every team that featured a Nigerian. So my love for Chelsea then was because of (John Obi) Mikel.

“Maybe in future, a movement is possible but right now my attention is on Villarreal. I want to focus well on my club and gain more confidence. Maybe when the time is ripe, I can move.”

Chukuweze, 20, broke into Villarreal's first team last season and scored five goals in 26 league appearances.
