The midfielder has 12 months left on his contract and is interesting several clubs
Various names continue to be linked with Barcelona ahead of the opening of the summer transfer window. According to 'Què T'hi Jugues' on Cadena SER, Mateu Alemany and Jordi Cruyff met on Tuesday with the agent of 18-year-old Aston Villa midfielder Carney Chukwuemeka.
The England youth international, who was born in Austria to Nigerian parents, is one of the emerging talents in the Premier League and is out of contract in 2023. His coach, Steven Gerrard, has faith in him and the club have offered him a new deal, but several sides are monitoring his situation.
However, despite the meeting between his camp with Alemany and Cruyff, a signing is not currently in the works. The youngster is also wanted by Arsenal, among others. If he does not renew at Villa this summer, his name will be one to follow closely over the next 12 months.
