- Samuel Chukwueze was injured at the latter stages of last season during a Europa League semifinal clash between Villarreal and Arsenal
- The Nigerian international is yet to gain full fitness and there are reports that he could be offloaded from the Spanish club
- Villarreal are desperate in signing David Neres from Ajax and it could be Chukwueze that would get the axe from the club
Nigerian international Samuel Chukwueze could be on his way out of Spanish club Villarreal according to latest reports from Spain as cited by Soccernet.
It was gathered that the Yellow Submarines are prepared to offload the Super Eagles winger in order to make room for their major target David Neres.
Chukwueze has not been in action since he was injured in a Europa League semi-final with English club Arsenal back in May.
His return date remains uncertain as the 22-year-old is yet to gain full fitness and teammate Yeremy Pino seems to have impressed manager Unai Emery in his position, GOAL reports.

Also, latest signing Arnaut Danjuma, who was signed from Bournemouth, has also had enough time to shine.
With these players in top form, it could be a tall order for Chukwueze to get back into first team contention.
Victor Osimhen continues to shine in Italy
Meanwhile, Super Eagles attacker Victor Osimhen was on fire for Napoli after scoring twice in their 4-0 away win over Sampdoria at Stadio Luigi Ferraris.
The 22-year-old forward has now scored five goals in his last three appearances for The Parthenopeans in all competitions.
Osimhen opened the scoring for the Blues in the 10th minute after tapping into the net from close range after receiving a delivery from Lorenzo Insigne from the left flank.
The former Lille forward completed his brace in the 50th minute with Hirving Lozano claiming the assist this time around. He sent the ball into the 18-yard box and it found the Nigerian who simply converted the opportunity.
