Inter Plot to Challenge Milan in Race to Sign Lille Ace

Milan are already positioning themselves to lure Jonathan David from Lille next summer, but they aren’t alone in that regard, as Inter are keen on him too. Les Dogues managed to repel the advances of the biggest clubs in Europe this summer by setting a €60/70M valuation, TuttoSport informs.

The situation will change drastically if the striker doesn’t pen an extension. His contract is up in 2025. The Rossoneri targeted and signed many players with just a year on their deals. They have a good relationship with his team. Their head scout Geoffrey Moncada is said to be a very big fan.

Milan will face robust competition, and Inter are eyeing David too. They added two veterans to their frontline, Alexis Sanchez and Marko Arnautovic. They might have to replace at least one in 2024.

The Nerazzurri would go after the Canadian international especially if Marcus Thuram didn’t live up to expectations. Even though his price tag is bound to decrease, they’d have to sell one of their stars, as they have routinely done in recent summer windows, to bankroll such an expensive acquisition.

Our Take on Inter, Milan, and David

Most European powerhouses will inevitably be in on him. Like their crosstown rivals, the Nerazzurri have likely planned an investment in the role in the near future. While he’s more prolific than Thuram, he’s fairly similar in terms of characteristics.
