Since joining SSC Napoli in 2019 out of Eredivisie side PSV Eindhoven, Hirving “Chucky” Lozano has established as one of the best Mexican players in Europe, even if he hasn’t had the regularity that he wished he had thanks to the changes of coaches Napoli has had since he arrived.

Lozano has had two moments with the Azzurri where he was able to show what he is capable of, the first one was when he arrived at Napoli thanks to the request of Carlo Ancelotti, although he wasn’t in Napoli enough time to help “Chucky” establish as an essential player.
The second moment was at the end of the 2020-21 season, when Genaro Gattuso helped him reach his potential. But since Gattuso left, Lozano hasn’t had the chance to establish as a regular player in Luciano Spalletti’s lineup.
Spalletti believes that he already found Lozano’s replacement in Rubin Kazan’s left-winger Khvicha Kvaratskhelia and added to the economic problems that Napoli is facing, “Chucky” Lozano’s departure is almost certain.
AC Milan interested in “Chucky”
According to reports from La Gazzetta dello Sports, AC Milan is on sale and will have a new owner for the 2022-23 Serie A Season, as an interested party in acquiring the Rossoneri already started negotiations with the current management.
Investcorp is offering $1.1 billion to acquire Milan and return them to the top places in Europe, as the last time they won an international title was in the 2006-07 season when they beat 2-1 Liverpool on the final of the Champions League.
The idea of Investcorp, a group of Bahrain’s millionaire investors, is to keep Paolo Maldini and the bases of the team but use their capital to invest in top-tier players, like “Chucky” to strengthen the squad, especially since they’re going to play in Champions League next season.
How much will they have to pay for “Chucky”?
According to Il Mattino de Italia, Napoli has changed Lozano’s status as transferable, which will allow Lozano to leave the Azzurri for his market value. If Milan were to acquire the 26-year-old right-winger, they will have to pay around $38 million to acquire his economic rights.
