A few days after becoming the first Nigerian footballer to sign with Jay-Z's Roc Nation Sports Agency, it seems Samuel Chukwueze's career is already looking up. Word on the street is that the agency is working towards getting him to play in the Premier League.
Of course, it's every footballer's dream to play in the Premier League, and thanks to his excellent, show-stopping form last season, the fast-rising 20-year-old even had a number of clubs from the league fighting to sign him.
After the 2019 AFCON, where he also made a mark, we thought he was going to join one of them, but he went back to train with Villarreal. The La Liga club tweeted about his return in a tone that suggested they, too, were shocked to see him back in Spain.
Well, Liverpool and Manchester United are still interested in Chukwueze, and Vanguard reports that Roc Nation Sports Agency is keen to up his value by handing him to any of the clubs. We can't wait to see the next move in his sure-to-be-great career.
