Milan Hold Summit with Entourage of Villarreal Star

Milan are focusing on their frontline in the early stages of the transfer market window and are going after Samuel Chukwueze. The youngster has quickly become their primary target to shore up their right wing.

Per Sky, director Geoffrey Moncada had a two-hour meeting with the attackers’ camp at the club’s HQ Tuesday. The Rossoneri gathered intel on the figures and conditions of the deal. The player has signed off on the destination. However, a proper negotiation with Villarreal has yet to commence at this stage.

On top of Chukwueze, Milan are eyeing Arsenal’s Reiss Nelson for the same role. His contract runs out in June, but the parties are ironing out the last details of an extension. The Italian side won’t give up until the forward puts pen to paper, though.

The club is waiting for Daichi Kamada’s agents to get certified in Italy before completing such a signing. On the other hand, they have identified potential fallbacks, for instance, Atlanta United’s Thiago Almada, La Gazzetta dello Sport relays. They have also rekindled their interest in Lazar Samardzic, who’s been on their radar for multiple sessions, TuttoSport relays.

Our Take on Milan and Chukwueze

The Rossoneri are prioritizing the right roles following Brahim Diaz’s return to Real Madrid. A menacing right winger would significantly increase their strike force. It won’t come easy to acquire the Villarreal starlet. Considering his predictably lofty price tag, whether or not they will see it through will be telling about the determination of their new front office and the resources at its disposal.
