AC Milan are in talks with Villarreal for the transfer of Samuel Chukwueze and the Rossoneri can now officially sign the Nigerian. In fact, the second non-EU slot in the squad has been freed up.
Milan have already registered one non-EU player this summer, namely Ruben Loftus-Cheek, and they can thus just register one more. However, the second slot is only made available if one of the current non-EU players in the squad leaves.
According to Daniele Longo, the Primavera player Kingsford Boakye has left Milan and has thus freed the second non-EU slot. This is the slot that Milan intend to use on Chukwueze who is Nigerian, as highlighted by the journalist.
The negotiations with Villarreal remain tough but Milan are confident that an agreement can be reached in the end. At least now they won’t have to be worried about offloading a non-EU player in order to complete the deal.
