Aston Villa wonderkid Carney Chukwuemeka reportedly has interest from a host of Europe’s elite, including Premier League giants Manchester United, City and Liverpool.
The 17-year-old attacking midfielder is widely considered one of the brightest prospects in England at the moment, and many clubs are now circling for his signature.
According to The Times, five of Europe’s biggest clubs are vying for his services, with reigning European champions Bayern Munich and Juventus joining those suitors from England.
Europe’s elite are battling it out for the signature of Aston Villa starlet Carney Chukwuemeka
Chukwuemeka has enjoyed a quick progression through the Villa ranks, and has been training with the first-team since last summer.
But in a huge blow to the teenager, he couldn’t showcase his ability in the third round of the FA Cup against Liverpool after he was part of the first-team group that was forced into isolation following the Covid-19 outbreak among the squad.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s United side have been keeping a close eye on his development for over a year now.
United are looking to join the teenager up with fellow youngsters Amad Diallo and Facundo Pellistri – also tipped for very bright futures.
The 17-year-old attacking midfielder is viewed as one of the most exciting prospects in England
Chukwuemeka has been tipped to get a taste of Premier League action soon and in October last year, signed a three-year contract at Villa Park when he turned 17.
Villa’s CEO – Christian Purslow – described the England Under 17 international as the best in the country at his age last year.
But despite his rapid progress at Villa and how highly regarded he is at the club, it certainly hasn’t deterred Europe’s giants from battling it out for his signature.
And United, City, Liverpool, Bayern and Juventus are waiting in the wings if Chukwuemeka can be tempted for an early move away to one of Europe’s best.
