Chukwuemeka, 17, is currently part of the Villians’ youth set-up and although manager Dean Smith has previously highlighted the youngster’s clear path to first-team football, the midfielder appears likely to move on in the summer.

It has been reported by Football Insider, that alongside the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City, Bayern Munich also has a strong interest in the English midfielder.

Compared to compatriot Jude Bellingham, who moved from Birmingham to Borussia Dortmund last summer, Chukwuemeka could also see his long-term future lie in Germany’s top-flight.

Despite still be yet to make his first-team debut, Chukwuemeka is highly rated with Aston Villa’s chief executive Christian Purslow previously referring him to as “probably the best 16-year-old in England”.

Chukwuemeka has scored nine goals and assisted a further 11 in 44 appearances, in all competitions, for Aston Villa’s youth teams.

    Why are we letting this happen to a very highly rated footballer that we have on our books.
    Why won’t Dean Smith blood these guys in the first team so they can see they are appreciated and part of the next formidable Villa team coming through the ranks
    It is a disgrace to our club to let this happen
    Villa forever

      Have Villa bot just signed him on a 3 year deal ?
      That’s what I read recently so if that is true he isn’t going to be going anywhere in the Summer.
