Aston Villa: Romano drops worrying update over Carney Chukwuemeka

Aston Villa midfielder Carney Chukwuemeka “could leave” Villa Park this summer, with a host of European clubs reportedly on alert.

What’s the word?

That’s according to super-journalist Fabrizio Romano who claims that the 18-year-old midfielder may well depart Steven Gerrard’s side this summer.

According to the Italian: “His recent lack of game time has put a host of European clubs on alert – with Germany a likely destination as he enters the final year of his contract.”

Romano added to his Twitter post: “Bundesliga clubs are already exploring this possibility.”

Gerrard fuming

Considering the sheer amount of potential that the young prodigy has expressed, losing him this summer would surely come as a big blow to the Villans.

Back in March of this year, Gerrard spoke of Chukwuemeka’s contractual status, as per Birmingham Mail, saying this: “We’ve done everything we can from our side to try and make progress.

“I’m not sure where that’s up to at the moment.”

From his perspective, should Chukwuemeka leave?

Yes

Yes

No

No

And when fellow academy graduate Jacob Ramsey signed a new deal at the Villans just last week, Gerrard was again asked for an update on Chukuemeka’s renewal status at the club: “No, I have no update on Carney’s situation” said the Villa boss, as per Birmingham Mail.

With the latest reports from Romano stating that the England U19s starlet “could leave”, it shows that no progress has been made over a new contract and as it stands, would see him depart in the summer for free.

The No.33 has not seen much action again this season, making just nine appearances in the Premier League, with his cameos accumulating to just 188 minutes on the pitch.

Can you beat this impossible Aston Villa quiz?!

Despite limited opportunities for Gerrard’s side, the 18-year-old has managed to produce an assist during that time and has primarily featured as a central midfielder. Though he has also been played slightly higher up in an attacking midfielder role in the Carabao Cup game against Barrow.

His versatility and potential will have the reportedly interested German sides licking their lips, and with Carney still no closer to signing a new deal, he may look to mimic the likes of Jaden Sancho and Jude Bellingham who braved the move to the Bundesliga in a bid to fast-track their development.

Should he live up to their careers so far, Villa will surely look back on this situation with an enormous amount of regret.
