Bayern Munich leads Liverpool and Man City in the race for the star of Aston Villa

According to the latest reports, the German giant Bayern Munich is in the first position to sign Carney Chukvuemeka from Aston Villa.

The 17-year-old Chukwuemeka is part of Willians’ youth squad, and although manager Dean Smith has previously highlighted the young man’s clear path to first-team football, the midfielder looks set to continue into the summer.

Football Insider reports that along with Liverpool and Manchester City, Bayern Munich also has a strong interest in the English midfielder.

Compared to compatriot Jude Bellingham, who moved from Birmingham to Borussia Dortmund last summer, Chukwuemeka can also see his long-term lie in Germany’s best flight.

Although he is yet to make his first-team debut, Chukwuemeka is highly regarded by Aston Villa CEO Christian Purslow, who previously described him as “perhaps the best 16-year-old in England”.

Chukvuemeka has scored nine goals and assisted 11 more in 44 appearances in all competitions for Aston Villa’s youth teams.
