The Italy international was signed by Villareal in August 2016 from Sassuolo for a fee of 13 million euros. The 25-year-old has a valid contract with Villareal until June 2021.
Since his arrival from Sassuolo, Nicola Sansone has scored nine goals and provided four assists in 44 games for Villareal in all competitions this season.
The 25-year-old is considered to be one of the best strikers in Italy.
Nicola Sansone has represented Italy at Under-17, Under-18, Under-19, Under-20 and Under-21 level, winning 16 caps and scoring one goal, before making his senior international debut in June 2015. As a member of Italy national football team, Nicola Sansone has won three caps.
Adding a striker remains Milan’s top priority this summer and Vincenzo Montella will have drafted a shortlist of a number of possible targets he could approach in the coming weeks.
The Italy international is thought to perfectly fit the profile of attacking player Vincenzo Montella wants to target in the summer transfer window.
AC Milan have already approached the Spanish club for information regarding their Italian striker Nicola Sansone.
The Italy international will definitely be a good addition to the Milan side.
Nicola Sansone would reportedly be interested in a move this summer to Italy, but if Milan do want him, they will have to beat those other interested clubs to his signature.
How strong that interest is and whether Milan will make a summer move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
