Villarreal winger, Samuel Chukwueze, could break the transfer record for a player of Nigerian descent before the close of the summer transfer window.

The Nigeria international is reportedly on the radar of European champions Liverpool and several teams in La Liga.

The clubs interested in signing Chukwueze must trigger his release clause of €63 million before the deal can go through as Villarreal are not ready to lower the transfer fee.

The winger would become the most expensive player of Nigerian descent in history if he leaves for that fee.

The 20-year-old would break the transfer record set by Togo international Emmanuel Adebayor, who joined Manchester City from Arsenal for a transfer fee of €29 million in July 2009.

In addition, he could become the most expensive player to have been transferred from Villarreal, surpassing the €40 million Manchester United paid the Yellow Submarine for Eric Bailly in 2016.
