Milan have set their sights on London in the first portion of the summer, as they are pursuing youngsters Carney Chukwuemeka and Reiss Nelson. The Rossoneri have moved onto different targets for the midfield. They and Roma missed out on Youri Tielemans, who agreed to a multi-year contract with Aston Villa over the weekend and will earn €5M annually, Calciomercato informs.
The Serie A powerhouse tracked the 19-year-old last year before he transferred to Chelsea, which outbid them with an €18M offer. They will try to add him on loan with option to buy this time. The starlet could ask out to play consistently. He has featured 17 times in his first season with the Pensioners, starting on 3 occasions.
On top of chasing after Chukwuemeka, Milan will make a Hail-Mary attempt to sway Nelson to join them on a free. His contract is about to expire, but he’s in advanced talks to re-up with Arsenal. He posted 3 goals and 3 assists in 18 appearances in the past season, as a pair of muscular injuries hampered him.
The winger spent a campaign on loan at Feyenoord in the recent past. The Rossoneri are eager to bring in a new option on the right flank. They insist on Villarreal’s Samuel Chukwueze, despite his price tag being hefty.
Our Take on Milan, Chukwuemeka, and Nelson
It’s a mouthwatering strategy, but, despite the obvious upside, there are some perils in going extra young and unproven. They would be sound acquisitions given the prospective terms, but they are unlikely to get their wishes.
