Samuel Chukwueze is getting closer to a move to AC Milan, a report claims. The Rossoneri have accelerated the talks with Villarreal and an agreement is now in sight, although it would be an expensive deal.
Milan need a new right-winger as Brahim Diaz has left the club and Junior Messias is expected to leave as well. Chukwueze appears to be the primary target and the Rossoneri’s pursuit of the player has been accelerated.
According to Daniele Longo for Calciomercato.com, Chukwueze is very close to Milan after positive contacts today. In fact, Villarreal have budged from their €35m demand and are now willing to close at €30m plus bonuses. The Rossoneri are thus seriously evaluating whether to close the deal or not.
A decision is expected in the coming hours, per the report, and the signing of the Nigerian would rule out the arrival of Mehdi Taremi (also non-EU). The second slot has officially been freed up by Milan as the Primavera player Kingsford Boakye has left the club (read here).
