The impressive summer recruitment drive being enjoyed by Italian giants AC Milan has kicked up another notch on Friday.
This comes with the powers that be at San Siro having struck not one, but two more deals, to reinforce Stefano Pioli’s attacking ranks.
With all of Marco Sportiello, Luca Romero, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Tijjani Reijnders and Christian Pulisic already through the door in Milanello, the Rossoneri, this afternoon, first sealed an agreement with their counterparts at Austrian outfit RB Salzburg, over the signing of Noah Okafor.
As per transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, highly-regarded frontman Okafor is all set to don the famous red and black, owing to a deal worth a fee in the region of €13/14 million.
The 23-year-old has already gone as far as to travel to Italy, ahead of putting pen to paper on a contract through the summer of 2028.
And yet, the Milan chiefs are not done there, either.
In a further update late on Friday evening, it has been confirmed by multiple sources that the Diavolo have all but signed off on a deal for yet another addition in the attacking third, in the form of Samuel Chukwueze.
An agreement has been put in place with Villarreal, for an initial fee of around €20 million, with the potential to rise to €28 million based on bonuses.
The final payment structure is expected to be set in stone over the weekend, before Chukwueze, an explosive winger, follows Okafor in reinforcing an increasingly potent-looking frontline on the red half of Milan.
