Barcelona identify Nigerian winger as replacement for Coutinho

LaLiga champions, Barcelona are lining up a sensational move for Nigeria wonderkid Samuel Chukwueze, according to Don Balon.

The newspaper claimed that the La Liga giants have decided to do away with the services of Brazil star Philippe Coutinho.

The Brazilian has struggled to live up to expectations since a big money move from Liverpool in January 2018.

The Club have made Chukwueze, who plays for Villarreal their top target this summer.

Chukwueze commands a transfer fee in the region of 60 million euros.

Villarreal are hoping to offer the international a new deal but little progress has been made as he doesn’t want his market value to increase.
