Sky Sport Italia reports that the deal is all but finalized, with only minor administrative formalities remaining to be resolved within the next few hours.
The final details are expected to be ironed out today once Chukwueze completes , paving the way for contract signings and official confirmation of the transfer.
Sources indicate that the transfer fee amounts to a substantial €20m, accompanied by an additional €8m in performance-related bonuses. Chukwueze’s current contract with Villarreal was due to expire at the end of the ongoing season, adding further motivation to finalize the deal swiftly.
One noteworthy complication as a result of his status as a Nigeria international, which means he does not possess an EU passport and this requires extra attention during the transfer process.

Chukwueze’s imminent arrival in Italy is expected on Tuesday for his medicals which will be the final step before he begins his journey as a proud Rossoneri.
The successful conclusion of this deal will prompt Milan to expedite his travel arrangements, ensuring his timely presence in the United States for the pre-season tour, where he will join Stefano Pioli’s squad.
As excitement builds within the Milan fan base, all eyes are now on the official announcement, eagerly awaiting Chukwueze’s debut in the iconic red and black jersey.
