AC Milan have officially announced on their website the signing of Samuel Chukwueze from Villarreal CF on a permanent deal. This is a marquee signing for the Rossoneri as it fixes a big problem area at right wing where the Rossoneri have lacked attacking output over the past decade. The Nigeria international signs a five year deal until the summer of 2028.

He has played his entire senior career at Villarreal making 204 appearances scoring 37 goals and providing 31 assists across 5 seasons. He won the UEFA Europa League with them in 2020/21. He is a regular for the Nigerian national team where he has been capped 28 times scoring 4 goals.

Fabrizio Romano is reporting that Milan have paid 20 million euros plus 8 in bonuses for the winger. He will not join the Rossoneri on their USA tour due to visa timelines but should be ready for the start of the season.

He will wear the number 21 shirt.
