AC Milan are keen on securing the services of Samuel Chukwueze and talks are ongoing with Villarreal, though the operation is very difficult. In the meantime, they have reached an agreement with the player.
Milan are looking for a new right-winger as Junior Messias is expected to leave the club this summer. Alexis Saelemaekers has also been linked with an exit but it has been quiet on that front lately, suggesting that he could remain after all.
The primary target for the right flank is Samuel Chukwueze and negotiations are ongoing with Villarreal. As learned by our colleagues at SempreMilan.it, Milan have an agreement with the player on a five-year contract worth €4m (including bonuses) per season.
Villarreal have asked for over €30m in the negotiations but Milan could make an attempt at €20-25m. The go-ahead of the player could help the Rossoneri in lowering the Spanish side’s demands.
Should the deal materialise, then Chukwueze would take the last non-EU spot in the squad. This means Milan wouldn’t be able to sign Mehdi Taremi.
