Villarreal attacker Samuel Chukwueze emerges as a potential transfer target for Everton, according to a report.

Everton are reportedly interested in bringing Villarreal attacker Samuel Chukwueze to Goodison Park during this summer's transfer window.

The 22-year-old has scored 17 goals and registered 17 assists in 119 appearances for the Yellow Submarine since making his debut in 2018.

Last term, the Nigeria international featured on 40 occasions in all competitions at club level, scoring five times and contributing eight assists in the process.

According to The Athletic, Everton are monitoring the attacker, who has previously been linked with both Manchester United and Liverpool.

The report claims that Toffees boss Rafael Benitez is a keen admirer of Chukwueze, with the player's current deal with Villarreal due to expire in less than two years.

The Nigerian largely operates as a right-sided attacker, but he has also played on the left and through the middle since stepping into the Yellow Submarine's first team in April 2018.
