Former Serie A champions AC Milan are interested in signing Super Eagles winger Samuel Chukwueze from Villareal this summer according to reports in Italy. This comes in the wake of growing interest from Real Madrid who are also reportedly interested in the 24-year-old wide forward.
Italian football transfer expert, Gianluca DiMarzio reports that the Milan club are looking to get a right winger for Stefano Pioli and contacts have already been made with Villareal for the potential transfer of the player.
