Milan haven’t stopped pursuing Samuel Chukwueze despite coming to terms with Chelsea for Christian Pulisic. However, they are having trouble concurring with Villarreal on his valuation. The Spanish side is resisting even though the youngster has only a year on his contract, TuttoSport informs (via FootballNews24).
The winger has agreed to the move, but El Submarino Amarillo hasn’t budged from a €35M request. The Rossoneri offered €20/25M.
If Milan managed to sign Chukwueze, it would rule out further extra-EU additions, as, for instance, Daichi Kamada and Mehdi Taremi, who’s a fallback option to bolster their attack if they couldn’t put their hands on Alvaro Morata, Calciomercato informs.
The Rossoneri had also targeted Arda Guler, but Real Madrid won the race and announced his arrival over the weekend. They are looking to offload at least Junior Messias in the same position.
Our Take on Milan and Chukwueze
He’s the most exciting option among those linked to them this summer. Another speedster opposite Rafael Leao would stretch the pitch and make their frontline very threatening, while Pulisic is a different type of player. They won’t get a discount despite his contractual situation, and it’ll be interesting to see if they’ll insist.
