Aston Villa: Carney Chukwuemeka linked with AC Milan move

Aston Villa: Carney Chukwuemeka linked with AC Milan move -Aston Villa News

Aston Villa youngster Carney Chukwuemeka has been linked with a move to Serie A champions AC Milan this summer as his future remains up in the air.

The Lowdown: Chukwuemeka a special talent

The 18-year-old is one of Villa’s most prized young assets, having recently won the European Under-19 Championship with England and been named in UEFA’s Team of the Tournament.

However, Chukwuemeka’s future is uncertain after not yet signing a new deal and being linked with a move away from Bodymoor Heath during the summer transfer window.

A move to one of Europe’s most prestigious clubs is now being mooted.

The Latest: Milan eye up Chukwuemeka move

According to Gazzetta dello Sport [via Sport Witness], ‘nobody should be surprised’ if Chukwuemeka ends up at Milan next season, with their interest in the midfielder very much genuine.

They are ‘serious’ about signing him and he is described as a ‘concrete target’ for the Serie A champions this summer.

The Verdict: Worrying for Villa

The thought of Villa losing Chukwuemeka this early in his career is a worrying one, considering how much he has to offer and what a force he could become over the years.

He won the Premier League 2 Player of the Month award last September and has been described as ‘outstanding’ by Paul Merson.

In truth, the likelihood is that the 18-year-old will move on at some point, but to lose him at this age would be particularly bad for Villa, especially as they wouldn’t even receive as big a fee as they probably would further down the line.

The hope is that Chukwuemeka ignores Milan’s advances, and other clubs for that matter, signing a new deal and committing his future to Villa for several years at least. Unfortunately, that looks most unlikely at present.
