Samuel Chukwueze on Wednesday arrived in Milan to complete his eagerly anticipated move from Villarreal of Spain to Serie A giants, AC Milan.
The Super Eagles arrived in Milan from Spain in a Private Jet and is currently undergoing his medical, after agreeing personal terms with the Rossonaries.
Even before the outcome of his medicals is ascertained, the Super Eagles winger has already chosen a shirt number 21.
www.ckdmedia.ng can confirm that the move should be made official on Thursday, ahead of his unveiling at either the San Siro or Casa Milan (the club's training ground), the next day.
After the usual medical and fitness checks, Chukwueze who wears the Jersey No. 13 in the Super Eagles set-up, will sign his five-year contract worth €4 million net per season.
The 24-year-old right winger who wore shirt No. 11 while with the Yellow Submarines, arrives Italy from Villarreal on a permanent deal with a €20m fixed amount plus €8m in bonuses.
Earlier this week and after months of speculation linking AC Milan with a move for Nigerian-Swiss, Noah Okafor, things finally came together as the forward was announced as the sixth summer signing.
With a statement on their official website Milan confirmed that they have signed the forward from Salzburg on a five-year contract.
Okafor has decided to wear the No.17 shirt, as was vacated by Rafael Leao with his move to No.10.
Fabrizio Romano among other sources has stated that Milan will sign Okafor for €13-14m and that he has signed a deal worth €2m net per season.
The 23 year old Swiss international spoke in an interview with Milan TV in which he revealed his emotions after making the switch, while he is now with the squad for their USA tour and could get his first minutes later this week against Juventus.
