AC Milan intensify pursuit of Villarreal attacker Samuel Chukwueze

AC Milan are intensifying their efforts to sign Villarreal attacker Samuel Chukwueze.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio, club directors held a crucial meeting with Chukwueze’s agents today.

The news has sparked excitement among Milan fans eager to see reinforcements on the right side of their attack.

With the recent departures of directors Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara, Milan’s talent scout Geoffrey Moncada took the lead in the meeting.

However, official negotiations with Villarreal have yet to start. This initial encounter served as an opportunity to gather information and lay the groundwork for a potential deal.

The meeting lasted for approximately two hours, but Milan demonstrated their seriousness in pursuing the Nigerian international.

Chukwueze has been an influential figure for Villarreal and has attracted attention from several top clubs.

His contract expires in June 2024, making this summer the ideal time for Villarreal to sell.

Chukwueze has bagged 37 goals and 31 assists in 207 appearances for Villarreal to establish himself as one of the top wingers in La Liga.

Real Madrid have also expressed interest in the 24-year-old, particularly after the departure of Marco Asensio to Paris Saint-Germain.

Although Chukwueze’s contract has an €80 million release clause, Milan intend to negotiate a lower fee.

Milan’s pursuit of Chukwueze reflects their determination to bolster their squad for the upcoming season.

His arrival would inject new energy into the Rossoneri’s quest for success in domestic and European competitions.

Rafael Leao on the left and Chukwueze down the right is an exciting combination that could serve Milan boss Stefano Pioli well.
