The Super Eagles star, Samuel Chukwueze, has captured the attention of top European clubs after a stellar season. The Nigerian talent, who plays for Villarreal in La Liga, has expressed his desire to join AC Milan in Serie A. However, the potential transfer is subject to certain conditions set by Villarreal.
According to reports from Italian media outlet Gazzette Dello Sport, there have been positive discussions and personal agreements between Chukwueze and AC Milan. The player’s desire to compete alongside fellow Nigerians Victor Osimhen and Ademola Lookman is a driving force behind his interest in joining the Italian giants.
Villarreal, known as the Yellow Submarine, will only allow Chukwueze to leave if their demand of at least €25 million plus bonuses is met. The club recognizes the young player’s potential and wants to secure a valuable deal before his contract expires in June 2024.
Chukwueze’s performances this season have been outstanding, scoring 13 goals and providing 11 assists under the guidance of Villarreal coach Quique Setién. His notable brace against Real Madrid brought further attention to his abilities and caught the eye of top European clubs.
Negotiations between Chukwueze’s camp and AC Milan are progressing positively, given the player’s contract situation. However, Villarreal President Fernando Roig Alfonso is likely to prefer a summer transfer to maximize the value of the Nigerian international.
As the transfer window approaches, football fans and pundits will be keeping a close eye on the potential move of Samuel Chukwueze to AC Milan. If the conditions set by Villarreal are met, the Nigerian star could join the ranks of one of Italy’s most historic clubs and continue his impressive rise in European football.
