Chukwuemeka has really impressed this season, with the ace starting to become a key player for the Under-23s side at just 17.

The midfielder’s also continued to play for the Under-18s in the prestigious FA Youth Cup – the tournament where he’s really set headlines, and made another outing at this level against West Brom.

Chukwuemeka has been red-hot for the 18s in the Youth Cup, with his six goals and two assists from just four appearances playing a massive role in the Villains booking a place in the final of the competition.

At Under-23s level, the 6ft1 midfielder has scored once and provided two assists in 18 outings.

With an eye for goal in the middle of the park – from both a finisher’s and creator’s aspect, it’s no surprise to see top clubs circling around the Villa talent.

Chukwuemeka is still contracted for another two years at Villa, so the West Midlands outfit are in a safe position when it comes to the ace and certainly don’t need to sell him on the cheap.
