Barcelona FC will not be signing Nigerian exciting winger, Samuel Chukwueze in the upcoming January transfer window, due to the significant investment they made in the summer on players like Antoine Griezmann and Frenkie de Jong.
Media Publication by Spanish outfit, Marca on Friday has reduced the number of interests on the 20-year-old leaving out Chelsea, Liverpool, Tottenham to battle for his signature in the next couple weeks.
Instead of signing players in January, the Barcelona board will start planning their transfer targets for the following season.
They could be in the market for a right-back, but that will depend on how Nelson Semedo and Sergi Roberto are performing in that position.
A centre-back is also on the agenda, but that will depend on whether Samuel Umtiti can get back to his best or whether the club want to trust Todibo and Ronald Araujo more.
Chukuweze broke into Villarreal ‘s first team last season and scored five goals in 26 league appearances.
His stock value is approximately £50 Million.
He has been nominated for the 2019 African Youth Player award along with Victor Osimhen.
