The 20-year-old has signed a five-year deal worth a reported 20 million euros.

Musah has been with Valencia since 2019 but is no stranger to Italy having lived in the country until the age of 10.

At Milan, he will join American compatriot and fellow new signing Christian Pulisic who arrived this summer from Chelsea for 20 million euros.

Milan, who have sold Sandro Tonali to Newcastle for 64 million euros, have so far splashed out 109 million euros in new transfers in an effort to improve on their fourth-place finish in Serie A last season.

In addition to Musah and Pulisic, they have also recruited the likes of Ruben Loftus-Cheek from Chelsea, Samuel Chukwueze from Villarreal and Tijjani Reijnders who arrived from AZ Alkmaar.
