Nigerian fans are abuzz with news coming from Italy and other sources saying Italian giants AC Milan have reportedly reached a verbal agreement with Samuel Chukwueze in their pursuit of the Villarreal winger.

Chukwueze has been on the radar of the Rossoneri in recent times, and they have taken a big step towards securing his services as agreement has been reached according to Gianluca Di Marzio.

For one, Milan have been interested in signing the 24-year-old Super Eagle for a while now. However, the Serie A side faces competitions from Arsenal and Aston Villa according to reports.

The Yellow Submarines have set a €40 million price valuation on Chukwueze but are willing to listen to offers for the Nigerian, who has a year left on his running contract.

According to Milan Eye, the Rossoneri have tabled an offer to Villarreal for Chukwueze; there are reports that the fee is around €35 million.

If this goes through, we'll see Chukwueze and Osimhen square off against one another in the coming Serie A season. Interestingly, both players have been best of friends for years now, which makes this deal be of particular interest for Nigerian fans who're positive about it.

With Chukwueze's arrival in Italy looking likely, the list of Super Eagles players in the Seria A is improving, keeping in mind that there's a certain Ademola Lookman in the books of Atalanta.

The Rossoneri have already completed the signing of Ruben Loftus-Cheek from Chelsea on Friday and according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the club are eager to add the exciting winger into their books.

Nevertheless, at the time of writing, Villarreal are yet to respond to AC Milan’s offer.

Chukwueze scored six goals and registered five assists in 37 games for Villarreal last season. He was particularly impressive when his Villarreal side met Real Madrid in Round 28 of the league season, scoring twice on the day to seal a 2-3 victory for the Yellow Submarine at the Santiago Bernabeu in April.

Reacting to the news of Chukwueze making a switch to the Italian Serie A where Victor Osimhen has made a comfortable niche for himself, Nigerian fans who are well aware of how close these two players are, have come out to express their desire to see Chukwueze's move materialize.

It will be of utmost joy to see this happen for Chukwueze who is eager to play champions league football next season.
