Atletico to make player-plus-cash offer for Chukwueze

Atletico Madrid have made Super Eagles’ winger Samuel Chukwueze their number one transfer target this summer and are willing to pull off every necessary trick to seal his move from Villarreal, according to respected Spanish publications, Elgoldigital.
Argentine manager Diego Simeone knows his forward line needs improvement if they are to successfully defend their league title and progress to the latter stages of the UEFA Champions League.
And the astute tactician has identified Chukwueze as the attacker to add some needed quality to Los Colchoneros.
With a $100 million release clause in Chukwueze’s contract, it won’t be easy to convince Villarreal to allow their precious jewel to depart on the cheap.
After a productive campaign that saw him play a crucial role in Villarreal winning the Europa League, Chukwueze is not short of suitors, with Marseille reportedly leading the chase for his signature.
But Atletico are planning to overtake other interested clubs by proposing an offer that Villarreal will find too tempting to refuse.
The champions are hoping to reduce the asking price for Chukwueze by including Colombian full-back Santiago Arias – a long-term Villarreal target – in the deal.
