Nigeria international Ikechukwu Uche has urged his compatriot Samuel Chukwueze to stay at Villarreal CF.
Uche, who is currently a free agent, was on the books of Villarreal between 2011 and 2015.
Chukwueze has been linked with top European clubs in the last few years, but Uche says the 20-year-old winger should stay at the La Liga club and continue his development.
The 36-year-old forward Uche spoke to Nigeria Infor FM about Chukwueze, who has been linked with reigning European champions Liverpool FC in the past.
“He is very good; everything is working very fast for him. He’s doing well, he’s growing,” Uche said.
“With the games, he’s been playing it shows he can get better. Where he is, it is obvious that he would get better.
Chukwueze has made 52 appearances in La Liga for the Yellow Submarine and scored eight goals since he made his debut in the competition during the 2018/19 season.
“He would do well because it is one of the best teams at the moment in the Spanish League,” he added.
“They’ve had important players and like bringing up players from the second team and make them stars.”
Chukwueze has scored two goals in 13 matches for Nigeria’s Super Eagles.
