West Ham United and Arsenal are eyeing up a ‘crazy’ summer move to sign Villarreal forward Samuel Chukwueze.

According to Mundo Deportivo (print edition April 21st, page 18), Villarreal attacker Samuel Chukwueze is on the radar of West Ham, but we could face competition from Arsenal.

Hammers manager David Moyes will undoubtedly be keen to bolster his attacking ranks at the London Stadium this summer.

One thing that the Scot needs to do is add pace to his side – we are painfully short of that at the moment.

So it’s no surprise to hear that our latest target is one of the quickest forwards in the game…

West Ham eyeing ‘crazy’ Samuel Chukwueze swoop

The Hammers were actually linked with a move to sign the lightning quick Villarreal forward last year.

And now Mundo Deportivo claim that West Ham are back in for the 24-capped Nigeria international.

I think that the 23-year-old would be an exceptional addition for the Hammers.

Sure, he’s not an orthodox centre-forward. He can play anywhere along the front-line, however, and is a frighteningly exciting young talent.

The 23-year-old has exceptional pace and possess terrific movement according to well known scouting website Breaking The Lines.

He has bagged 13 goals and 11 assists in 41 games for Villarreal so far this season (Transfermarkt).

Chukwueze has so much talent and potential. If David Moyes manages to bring him to the London Stadium in the summer, it would be a big statement of intent from the Hammers.

Goal claim that he could be available for around €50 million (£44 million). That sounds like a lot of money but I think it would be great value for us. Let’s hope that this one happens.
