Concise News understands that the supporters club, also called Agrupació de Penyes del Villarreal CF(AVP) presented the awards to the African alongside Santi Cazorla, who was named as the best player.
Chukwueze had a great 2018-19 season as he broke into the Yellow Submarines first team.
The youngster was part of Nigeria’s team to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Egypt.
Meanwhile, Chelsea and England striker, Tammy Abraham, who is of Nigerian descent has disclosed he could switch his international allegiance to play for the Super Eagles of Nigeria, Concise News reports.
Speaking to ACL Sports on the possibility of representing Nigeria, Abraham said: “Anything is still possible. I have not ruled it out completely but we will see!”
Recall that the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) was keen on recruiting Abraham before the 2018 World Cup in which President Amaju Pinnick thought he had convinced the player after visiting him in London, only for him to deny the reports.
Abraham has made two appearances for the Three Lions in friendly matches against Germany and Brazil, which makes him available for a potential switch.
The 21-year-old has not been invited to the senior national team of England for close to two years, but remains a key member of the U21 team.
