Samuel Chukwueze could very soon become a new player of Milan.

Milan want to give Pioli a complete squad as fast as possible so he can integrate the new players into the playing style before the beginning of the season, thus not repeating the mistakes of last year in which the new players barely contributed in the 1st half of the campaign.

The Rossoneri have already signed Marco Sportiello, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Luka Romero, Christian Pulisic, Tijjani Reijnders and Noah Okafor (signatures tomorrow) and they are expected to soon get Samuel Chukwueze, who has been their priority since the start.

According to’s Antonio Vitiello and Pietro Mazzara, Milan “have Chukwueze in their hands” and the operation for the right-winger is very close to being concluded. Daniele Longo of goes as far as saying that a verbal agreement has been reached and the details will be concluded within 48 hours as CEO Giorgio Furlani is currently on his way to the United States together with the rest of the squad for the pre-season camp and tournament.

Matteo Moretto and Nacho Sanchis of the Spanish Relevo suggest that the transfer is 99% closed and Milan will pay around €25-28m for the player for whom Villarreal initially wanted more. MARCA is also reporting similar numbers, claiming Chuk is very close to joining the Rossoneri for €25m. Personal terms have already been agreed for a while with the player, who wants to join the Diavolo.

Pioli views Chukwueze as the perfect player to play the opposite side of Rafael Leão and Milan could finally have a right-winger capable of causing trouble for the opponents. More news is expected.

Mr pioli and the board shouldn’t forget that African nation league cup is around the corner they should leave Saleamajers for backup of Samuel if he leave for nation’s cup nice singing from the board can’t wait too see my Nigerian provoking the league with bangs of goals


Finally a decent RW!! There has been a lot of new faces, if pioli can make it work we will have a heck of a team. But let’s not forget, integrating these many faces is risky.
