Chukwueze will join Everton on loan.


According to Mundo Deportivo, Samuel Chukwueze is on his way to Everton on loan. 

Chukwueze’s loan deal includes a €45 million permanent transfer option at the end of the season. 

His transfer seemed unlikely until Tuesday, when Everton stepped up negotiations and agreed to a deal in principle with the winger. 

Everton’s alternative was thought to be Denis Suarez, but with a €80 million clause, the Toffees were outbid. 

Suarez, on the other hand, could move the other way to Villarreal to replace Chukwueze, who has previously been linked with Everton’s Premier League rivals, Liverpool. 

If the deal goes through, Chukwueze will join the ranks of Super Eagles stars in the Premier League, alongside Alex Iwobi, who plays for Everton.
