Chukwueze reveals Osimhen’s role in his transfer to AC Milan



Super Eagles winger, Samuel Chukwueze has revealed that his national teammate Victor Osimhen played a key role in his decision to join AC Millan.

The Nigeria international officially joined the Serie A side on Thursday from Spanish club Villarreal in a deal worth €20m plus €8m add-ons, according to reports.

In a chat with Milan TV, Chukwueze was quoted as saying that his conversation with Napoli forward Osimhen convinced him to join the Rossoneri.

“We [I and Osimhen] joked about it [my transfer to AC Milan] the last time we chatted. He [Osimhen] said, ‘Samuel, AC Milan is a very nice club. It’s the best club. Don’t hesitate to sign with them. They’re fantastic. They have good people and their fans are amazing.’

“I said okay, hope you know I’m going to win you? And he said, ‘Let’s see how it goes,” Chukwueze told Milan TV.

Osimhen helped Napoli win the Serie A title last season, and is likely to remain in the club next season.

Osimhen also emerged as the best player of the league after clinching the golden boot.
