Chukwueze: Cazorla confirms calls from Arsenal over in-demand Villarreal winger

Former Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla has revealed he received calls from the Gunners over a potential summer transfer of Villarreal winger Samuel Chukwueze.

The highly-rated Nigeria international has been in fine form since his promotion to the first team of the Yellow Submarine in 2018, which has seen him attract interests from a number of Premier League clubs including Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool.

During the January transfer window, Villarreal reportedly turned down a €35million offer from the Reds for the 20-year-old.
