“AC Milan is delighted to announce the signing of Samuel Chimerenka Chukwueze from Villarreal CF,” the San Siro outfit announced on their official website.
He becomes the third Nigerian to sign for Milan, joining Taribo West and Taiye Taiwo.
Chukwueze moved to Villarreal in 2017 from Umuahia-based Diamond Football Academy after being scouted in a competition in Uyo, Nigeria.
He played 20 games for the club’s B team, scoring four goals before making his senior debut in September 2018.
With the Yellow Submarine’s first team, Chukwueze — who has been assigned the no.21 shirt — made 207 appearances and scored 37 goals.
