With 24 hours to the end of the transfer window, Everton are set to have their second Nigerian player. Samuel Chukwueze is on the verge of joining Everton on loan according to Mundo Deportivo. Chukwueze’s loan move comes with a €45m mandated permanent transfer option at the end of the season. His transfer never looked like happening until Tuesday when Everton stepped negotiations up and agreed a deal in principle with the winger.

The alternative for Everton was believed to be Denis Suarez, but with an €80m clause, the Toffees were out priced. Suarez may however move the opposite way to Villarreal to replace Chukwueze who had been linked in the past with Everton’s Premier League local rivals, Liverpool.

Nigerian radio presenter and entertainment broadcaster, Do2tun was on the second episode of Carball with Babajide Guerrero, where he showed his knowledge of football and discussed issues around Arsenal, how he started watching football, the World Cup and what he thinks about some footballers.
Should the deal pull through, Chukwueze will join the ranks of Super Eagles stars in the Premier League with Alex Iwobi starring in Merseyside while Taiwo Awoniyi, Frank Onyeka, Joe Aribo, Emmanuel Dennis and others are also in the league. Chukwueze has spent the entirety of his European career at Villarreal after coming through the ranks at the club. He was a star alongside Victor Osimhen and Kelechi Nwakali at the 2015 U-17 World Cup won by Nigeria in Chile where he won the Bronze Ball award.
Everton manager Frank Lampard is desperate to bring consistency to his side in their next couple of games and in order to do so, he is trying to bring in fresh legs to the squad so there would be more competition for places in the team.
