It has been a busy Friday for AC Milan, who are now close to securing the signing of Samuel Chukwueze after agreeing a deal for Noah Okafor.
According to the latest from Relevo.com, Milan are closing in on a deal for Chukwueze with Okafor on the way in. Given the winger’s deal expires in June 2024, Chukwueze’s sale seems like the best option for the three parties involved.
Milan and Villarreal have become considerably closer in the last few hours in terms of offer and valuation. The Rossoneri management – who have had Chukwueze’s approval for weeks – seem to have reached an almost complete agreement with the Spanish club.
The amount they would pay is around €25-28m, bonuses included. Villarreal are aware of the player’s will and the need to sell to prevent his departure on a free transfer next year, and as a result they seem inclined to accept.
Milan’s aim is to get the deal over the line as quickly as possible and given Stefano Pioli a winger that he personally asked for, with the deal now ‘99% closed’ as per the report.
