Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City are all considering a swoop for the Nigeria international and Villarreal sensation Samuel Chukwueze at the end of the season.
The 20-year-old has drawn admiring glances since making his senior debut in September 2018, chipping in with 12 goals and seven assists in 64 appearances for Villarreal.
The Yellow Submarine are reluctant to lose their most prized asset and have slapped a big price tag on his head in an effort to scare off suitors.
According to the Daily Mail, Chukwueze has been valued by the Spanish club at £60m, which would represent their record sale by some margin if they were to achieve said fee.
Reports in France suggested Liverpool have already had a £30 million offer knocked back.
