AC Milan on the brink of signing Nigerian winger Samuel Chukwueze from Villarreal. Deal details and debut anticipation.
AC Milan is on the verge of securing a transfer coup as they finalise the details to sign Nigerian winger Samuel Chukwueze from Villarreal.
The talented 24-year-old is expected to arrive in Italy this week to officially become a new Rossoneri player.
The negotiations between AC Milan and Villarreal took some time, with the Spanish club initially holding out for higher demands.
However, a compromise was eventually reached, and Milan's offer of €20 million plus €8 million in bonuses was accepted by Villarreal.
Samuel Chukwueze is set to sign a five-year contract with AC Milan, earning €4 million per season.
As part of the deal, Milan's defender Matteo Gabbia will join Villarreal on a season-long loan.
Once the necessary medical checks and contract signing are completed, Samuel Chukwueze will fly to Los Angeles to join his new teammates for the pre-season tour.
The exciting winger could potentially make his debut in high-profile matches against Juventus or Barcelona.
