Samuel Chukwueze of the Super Eagles, who plays on the flank for Villarreal, has been nominated for La Liga player of the month for March.
Six of Villarreal’s previous seven league goals have been scored or assisted by the Nigerian forward, and his recent form has placed him among the league’s best players.
After hitting a breathtaking volley to start the scoring in Villarreal’s away triumph at Osasuna at the weekend, Chukwueze was nominated for the prestigious prize.
The goal takes his tally to 11 goals and 11 assists this season, making him one of the most effective attacking players in the league.
Chukwueze will battle for the award with Iago Aspas of Celta Vigo, Borja Iglesias of Real Betis, Enes Ünal of Getafe, Antoine Griezmann of Atletico Madrid, Barcelona’s Raphina, and Manchester City legend David Silva, now plying his trade for Real Sociedad.
The Nigerian international will be looking to continue his fine form and help his team secure another vital victory when they take on Real Sociedad on April 2nd.
