Nigeria international Samuel Chukwueze has attracted reported interest from the English Premier League.

According to the Leicester Mercury, both Arsenal and Leicester City are keen on landing the Villarreal attacker in the January transfer window. Atletico Madrid have also expressed their interest in the winger.

Chukwueze has scored four goals in 13 matches across all competitions for the Spanish club this season, after breaking into the first team following an impressive string of performances in the Segunda division.

The 19-year-old won the 2015 U17 World Cup with Nigeria, earning a move to the Spanish LaLiga club from Nigeria's Diamond Academy in the aftermath.

Chukwueze made his debut for the Super Eagles in a friendly match against Uganda last month.

Both Arsenal and Leicester have Nigerian internationals on their books with Alex Iwobi plying his trade for the Gunners. The Foxes boast Kelechi Iheanacho and Wilfred Ndidi in their ranks.
