AC Milan want to land Chukwueze, but Villarreal want another player in return
La liga side Villarreal wants AC Milan to add French midfielder Yacine Adli to their bid for Super Eagles striker Samuel Chukwueze, Soccernet reports.
The Nigerian star has been excellent for the Yellow Submarine this season, notching 13 goals and making 11 assists, which has piqued top European clubs’ interest.
Meanwhile, Serie A giants have been linked with Nigerian forward Chukwueze this summer. The Nigerian attacker’s contract at Villarreal expires next summer, and a move away from the club looks certain.
Soccernet.ng earlier reported that the Rossoneri had opened a bid for the 24-year-old winger. However, they may need to improve on their offer.
Milan Post has reported that Villarreal wants Milan to add Yacine Adli to their offer before a transfer can take place.
Adli is a French-Algerian attacking midfielder. The 22-year-old started his career at PSG before joining the Rossoneri in 2021.
But he has yet to become an integral team member, as he spent last season on loan at Ligue 2 club Bordeaux. He is currently valued at €8 million per Transfermarket.
Reports suggest that Chukwueze has already agreed on personal terms with AC Milan. The club needs to agree on a price with Villarreal.
