Liverpool Tried to Get Villarreal's Rising Star Chukwueze For $39 Mln - Reports

Liverpool attempted to buy Villarreal forward Samuel Chukwueze back in January during the transfer window, however, the club's £30 million bid (around $39 million or 35.5 million euros) was rejected, according to France Football.

Jurgen Klopp’s team reportedly wanted the player to back up Mohamed Salah on the right flank after they reinforced the centre with Divock Origi their left-wing with Takumi Minamino. The Spanish club valued its winger at around £60 million, much higher than the Reds were offering.

​The Nigerian, who is under contract with Villarreal until 2023, made 22 appearances in La Liga, scoring three goals and providing three assists. Chukwueze is considered to be one of the most promising young players in football.
