Samuel Chukwueze against Real Madrid.
Could the Super Eagles wideman be the man to solve Chelsea's ongoing problems?

Fans believe Villarreal winger Samuel Chukwueze would be a huge success at Chelsea and make them a threat on the right wing given how good he has been for his club.

The Nigeria international was among the standout performers as the Yellow Submarine beat La Liga champions Real Madrid 2-1 on Saturday, drawing plenty of praise from fans.

Chukwueze made life difficult for Madrid defenders with his pace, incisiveness and tenacity, creating three big chances for his teammates while making two attempts at goal and was also an asset for his team defensively.

His impressive performance has left fans feeling he should be playing for a much bigger club than Villarreal, with the Blues seen as the side that could benefit from his skillset.

  • Samuel Chukwueze, Villarreal

    Chukwueze is underrated

    Trust if he was playing in a big team, he’d be getting best winger in the world shouts. He proves how underrated he is every season. -@FutGodzy

    We will never get off the Chukwueze train. He has everything to become a great player.

    Should be playing for a big team

    This game confirms to me what I’ve always thought: I refuse to believe Chukwueze doesn’t have the potential to play in a big team. He’s extremely explosive, agile, world class dribbler, has good body coordination, has a strong core. He’s one of the few certainly good left-footed right-wingers. -@danieIscouting

    Chukwueze should work harder

    Samuel Chukwueze is enjoying more playing time under Villarreal's new manager. He should start working harder to prove himself. -@popsondebo

  • Samuel Chukwueze of Nigeria and Villarreal.

    Chelsea should go all out for him

    Chelsea should go all out and snatch Chukwueze from Villarreal to reinforce the right wing. Very good ball retention and eluding from tight spaces. -@enovelist1

  • Marcelo Real Madrid

    Marcelo would have had it rough

    Marcelo would’ve shattered his ACL trying to keep up with Chukwueze today [Saturday].

    Chukwueze enjoying positional freedom

    Chukwueze has been really incredible, he seems to have more positional freedom than mere hugging the sidelines. -@_bookxy

  • Samuel Chukwueze and Karim Benzema.

    A big-game player

    Watching @chukwueze_8 against Real Madrid this evening and I can say this young man is a big-game player. -@totaloil4real

  • Samuel Chukwueze Villarreal

    Still needs fine-tuning

    Samuel Chukwueze just needs good coaching and be a little serious with football, a very good player in there. -@denver_fcb

    Samuel Chukwueze still has immense problems with his finishing. Vinicius who was in the same class with him has left him. -@fafamaruku

  • Samuel Chukwueze Nigeria.

    Should play the same for Nigeria

    Chukwueze (Villarreal) is punishing Madrid, just like many other La Liga clubs. I don't know why these guys play shabbily while playing for [the] Super Eagles. -@mb_mafara

  • Samuel Chukwueze Villarreal

    He’s got everything you need in a winger

    As inconsistent he can be, Chukwueze is a very exciting player. He has got every single quality you would look for in a winger. 1v1 ability, speed, technical ability is off the charts and he is a reliable option when breaking out from pressure. He is ready for the next step.
