ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT
We would love to see the club make a move for Chukwuemeka. Chukwuemeka is yet to play for Aston Villa’s first-team.
However, the central midfielder is the youngest member of Aston Villa’s under-23 squad, which highlights that he is a talented player.
As Chukwuemeka is only 17 years of age, he would be a signing for the future. It is important that the club has an eye to the future.
The players that represent the club at this current moment are all very good. That can be backed up by the fact that they have won the European Cup and Premier League title with Liverpool.
However, the aforementioned players won’t be around forever. The report does state that Aston Villa will offer Chukwuemeka a new deal when he turns 18 later this year.
It will be interesting to see if the youngster signs the new deal or looks to depart the club.
