AC Milan still have Samuel Chukwueze at the top of their wish list and are expected to make one last push before abandoning the pursuit. According to a report, the Rossoneri are well aware of how to close the deal.
As reported in today’s edition of Gazzetta Dello Sport (via SempreMilan), Milan still have both Mehdi Taremi and Samuel Chukwuexe on their radar. The latter player seems to be a slight favourite for the time being, wth the Rossoneri ready to accelerate pursuit.
The talks with Villarreal have been ongoing on two fronts, namely for Chukwueze as well as Arnaut Danjuma. The demands have been high for the Nigerian thus far but the Spanish side are still negotiating, which is an important signal.
Milan know that an agreement could most likely be reached at €25m, either by increasing the bonuses of their most recent offer or increasing the base of it. Meanwhile, an agreement has already been reached with the player at €4m per season.
Of course, signing Chukwueze would rule out Taremi as the former would take the final non-EU spot. Speaking of which, the negotiations with Porto have not moved forward, as the Portuguese side seem unwilling to negotiate unlike Villarreal.
Finally, Danjuma could arrive as an all-round man for the attack and there are talks over a loan worth €4m. The clubs need to decide if the option to buy should be mandatory or not, but a happy ending is expected.
