Di Marzio: Gabbia to Villarreal imminent with Chukwueze deal now unlocked

By Oliver Fisher -

The evolution of AC Milan’s summer transfer window continues at a rapid pace, and they are apparently close to letting Matteo Gabbia leave.

According to the latest from Gianluca Di Marzio, Milan are working on more exits after having secured Noah Okafor as the sixth signing of an already busy summer following the sale of Sandro Tonali to Newcastle United.

Gabbia should soon leave the United States to begin his new adventure with Villarreal, he adds. His move to the LaLiga side also means that Samuel Chukwueze’s move to the Rossoneri is imminent.

The final agreement between the parties is expected on Monday, and Gabbia will move to the LaLiga club on a one-season dry loan deal. Villarreal were pushing for the defender to give the definitive go-ahead to let Chukwueze leave.

In addition to that, the journalist reports that Milan remain intent on signing Yunus Musah from Valencia but are not in a huge rush and first want to close some exits.

  1. I’m absolutely convinced that Milan’s last recruit in the last few days before September will be Lukaku. He’ll be the big surprise at the end of the mercato. He will come on a 2-year loan with an obligation to buy in several stages. In any case, at 35 or 36, we can always sell him to the Saudis at a high price.
    Okafor will be Leao’s understudy, just in case. And that’s why he’ll be wearing the number 17. However, he will be able to play in the striker’s role from time to time to back up Giroud or Lukaku.
