'Individual brilliance' - Emery sends warning to Premier League side Arsenal about Super Eagles star

Former Arsenal boss Emery sends warning to Premier League side Arsenal about Super Eagles star player.

The Nigerian international winger was ostensibly the best player on the pitch, hitting the woodwork in both first and second half and just an extraordinary save kept him from scoring in the end minutes of the game. 

Ahead of the Yellow Submarine's match against Arsenal in the last four, Emery featured the impact of the Super Eagles star Chukwueze to the Villarreal squad and singled him out for exceptional acclaim for his phenomenal showcase against Dinamo Zagreb. 

The La Liga side Villarreal manager will do battle with his former side Arsenal in the UEFA Europa League elimination round after they beat Dinamo Zagreb 3-1 on aggregate last night. 

The Spanish player Paco Alcacer gave them the lead on the night nine minutes before half-time, assisted by the Super Eagles star Samuel Chukwueze, before Gerard Moreno added to the lead in the 43rd minutes. 

Talking at the post-match press conference, the former Arsenal manager Emery said : "We have tracked down the individual commitment like Samu's today on the right wing, where he has found again situations of individual splendor, which carried generally excellent things to the team". 

the north London club Arsenal had been in post situation to sign the Super Eagles of Nigeria star Chukweze after he put himself in the market window back then during the 2015 U17 World Cup, just for the arrangement to fall without a second to spare after the Gunners and Diamond Academy couldn't concede to the installment terms regardless of the winger passing a medical. 

The Premier League side Arsenal agreed a £1.5 million transfer fee and the Nigerian club would have been paid £500,000 when he breaks into the first team in addition to an extra £500,000 when he shows up for the Super Eagles of Nigeria.
