Posted by

The Toffees are rebuilding again after the shock departure of Carlo Ancelotti, and the even more surprising appointment of Benitez.

With three new signings already secured, the new man in charge isn’t wasting any time in looking at other areas of his squad that need strengthening.

To that end, La Razon, via The Athletic and cited by the Liverpool ECHO, are reporting that Villarreal’s exciting 22-year-old, Samu Chukwueze, is on Everton’s radar.

Though his €68m release clause would appear to be problematic, if the Yellow Submarine are able to find an adequate replacement, the likelihood is that they will bring the fee down in order to push through a deal.

Chuwueze’s pace, industry and eye for goal would certainly win over the demanding Goodison Park faithful in no time.
