AC Milan are closing in on the signing of Samuel Chukwueze and in their talks with Villarreal, Matteo Gabbia was also brought up. In fact, the defender is expected to join the Spanish side on a dry loan, a report claims.
Milan have been working on the arrival of Chukwueze for quite some time and it appears the two clubs have reached an agreement in principle. The Rossoneri are expected to pay around €28m, including bonuses, and the winger’s arrival is imminent.
As reported by TMW (via SempreMilan.it), Villarreal expressed their interest in Gabbia during the negotiations with Milan and the latter’s willingness to send him on loan unblocked the Chukwueze talks as well.
Furlani and Co. don’t want to let Gabbia leave on a permanent basis and the formula should thus be a dry loan, per the report. Frosinone and Genoa are also interested in the centre-back but Villarreal are the clear frontrunners.
