The exciting youngster has found the progression from promise to consistent delivery difficult to negotiate, and is in danger of fading out of view.
Has anyone been paying attention to the situation of Samuel Chukwueze at Villarreal?
The precocious youngster, who turned 21 in the middle of the year, has started just two of Villarreal’s last 10 league matches. His last goal involvement in any competition was six matches ago, and his most recent outing, complete with new blonde coiffure, continued a theme of general ineffectiveness.
Whisper it quietly, but Chukwueze seems to be losing his way.
