The 20-year-old enjoyed an outstanding breakthrough campaign last season, where his form brought him to the attention of some of European football giants and also saw him make his international debut for Nigeria. The likes of Arsenal, PSG and Real Madrid have all been mentioned as possible suitors, but according to Goal, it is Liverpool who are most watching the youngster closely. As per the report, scouts from the European champions have been regular visitors to the Estadio de la Cerámica and it’s believed Liverpool could make a move as early as January for a player already thought to be high up on Jurgen Klopp’s wish-list. Liverpool already have Senegalese star Sadio Mane and Egyptian king Mohamed Salah on their books and the capture of Chukwueze could give them an all-out African attack. The Nigerian is currently rated in the €40 million bracket, but with his value likely to soar, Liverpool know they may have to strike sooner rather than later or run the risk of seeing his price rise dramatically. Liverpool are also said to be keen on €15 million-rated Trabzonspor keeper Ugurcan Cakir. And having watched him in action over the weekend, it’s now reported in Turkey that the Reds are plotting a January approach for his services.Tags: European FootballLiverpoolSamuel Chukwueze read more

An agreement may even harder to strike this summer given the financial implications of the coronavirus pandemic, although reportedly Barcelona could offer players in exchange.“I would love to be able to coach him some day,” said Setien, speaking to beIN Sport on Friday night. “We are talking about an exceptional level. Fortunately I have already fulfilled one of my dreams, which was to coach (Lionel) Messi but I would be delighted if Neymar comes.”Neymar previously formed a successful attacking trio with Luis Suarez and Messi at Barcelona but the future of Suarez is uncertain.The 33-year-old has not played since January when he underwent surgery on an injury to his right knee, and Setien admitted he needs more time to regain full fitness with La Liga due to restart from its coronavirus-enforced suspension in the middle of next month.Asked if Suarez was fully fit, Setien said: “No, I think he’s in a good condition and has been working with the group. But we see that he lacks a bit of confidence. “He underwent an operation and after two months I would say he’s still recovering. But it’s clear that soon (he will be ready), I don’t know whether it will be two, three or four weeks.”Barcelona sit top of the table, two points ahead of Real Madrid.Tags: BarcelonaNeymar JrParis Saint-Germain read more
