AC Milan are pushing to try and sign Samuel Chukwueze from Villarreal but it seems as though another option has been firmly explored.
Calciomercato.com report that Milan will now go for a right winger after closing the signings of Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Luka Romero and Christian Pulisic. The management are working hard with Villarreal to try and find an agreement for Chukwueze.
The first offer worth around €25m was not accepted, because the Spaniards want more for the 24-year-old despite the fact that he has a contract expiring in 2024 and does not seem to want to renew.
CEO Giorgio Furlani and his transfer team have no intention of letting go, aware that it will take time and a lot of work to get to the finish line. There is already a verbal agreement with the player for a four-year contract.
Meanwhile, Milan do not want to be caught unprepared and they have have a verbal agreement with FC Midtjylland for Gustav Isaksen too, who had 31 goal contributions (22 of them goals) last season.
The 22-year-old has been on the Rossoneri’s radar for almost a year and he could become plan B in the event Chukwueze does not arrive. In this case a large part of the budget would be moved to signing a new No.9.
It cannot be excluded that the Dane could join together with Chukwueze, but it would have to involve the sale of Alexis Saelemaekers who is more likely to remain. In the next few days the Diavolo will make a definitive decision.
