It has been reported that Chukwueze has a release clause of €63 million (£53.55m), and that it will take an offer of at least €40 million (£34m) for any club to prise away the Nigeria international winger from Spanish club Villarreal.
According to WhoScored, Chukwueze has made 11 starts and seven substitute appearances in La Liga for Villarreal so far this season, scoring three goals and providing three assists in the process.
During the 2018-19 campaign, the 20-year-old winger made 19 starts and seven substitute appearances in the league for the Yellow Submarine, scoring five goals and providing two assists in the process, according to WhoScored.
Unlikely Liverpool transfer
While Chukwueze is a very talented and promising young winger, it is hard to see Liverpool make a move for him, especially this month.
After all, the Reds have only just signed Takumi Minamino (for £7.25 million, as reported by The Independent), who is 24 years of age and can operate as a winger or as an attacking midfielder, and manager Jurgen Klopp does not really need another attacking player.
