AC Milan are in a three-way race to sign talented Aston Villa midfielder Carney Chukwuemeka, according to a report.
Chukwuemeka is just 18 years old and has been playing for Aston Villa since he was 12, but it seems that he now wants a change of scenery and there are a number of clubs keen, especially after he helped England win the U19 European Championships last month, with a goal in the final against Israel and a place in the team of the tournament.
According to what was reported by SportMediaset (via MilanNews) this afternoon, the Rossoneri are indeed in the running to sign the teenager, but his asking price for the current summer market is high because of the competition.
Villa are asking for around €20m to sell despite it being within a year of the expiry of his contract, because the England U19 international is part of a three-way battle involving the Rossoneri, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain.
