Noah Okafor will head to the United States and reach his teammates tomorrow, and Samuel Chukwueze of Villarreal will soon join as well.

Friday was a very busy day at Casa Milan as they secured two important additions for the attack: Noah Okafor from Red Bull Salzburg for a total of €14m, and Samuel Chukwueze from Villarreal for €20m + €8m of bonuses.

Okafor has been in Milano since last night and is currently undergoing the medical check-ups and will today sign the five-year contract with Milan, who will see him earn €2m + bonuses per season.

As reported by Antonio Vitiello of, the forward, who can play as a left-winger, right-winger and center forward, will tomorrow travel to the United States, where he will reach his new teammates for the pre-season tour and will begin to work under coach Stefano Pioli.

As for Chuk, the agreement for the Nigerian was found yesterday and Vitiello claims that the details will be completed ‘in the next hours’ as the work of the lawyers still needs to be done. Daniele Longo of suggests Chukwueze will be in Italy on Monday and then undergo the medical and sign the contract with the club. La Gazzetta dello Sport understands that he will sign a deal worth €4m per season, which will make him one of the best-paid players in the squad.

Longo meanwhile suggests that Milan and Villarreal are still talking, but this time they are negotiating about a Milan player, which so far remains unnamed.
