Jonathan David is enduring a rough start to the season, which might favor Milan, perhaps in January already. The Lille star has been atop their wish list for the position for a couple of years. His dry spell, on top of his contractual situation, should lower his price tag, making him a more attainable target, La Gazzetta dello Sport informs.
Les Dogues always asked for €60M to part ways with their star. The Rossoneri can’t spend that much in the summer, let alone during the winter. However, they believe his valuation will decrease drastically as the expiration date of his deal, 2025, begins looming and because of his subpar performances. He has scored just twice so far and has been benched a few times.
The Canadian ace returned to the starting XI over the weekend due to Yusuf Yazici’s suspension after being a sub for two matches in a row. However, he didn’t snap out of his slump, which started on August 27h.
On top of David, Milan are keeping tabs on Stuttgart’s Serhou Guirassy and Montpellier’s Akor Adams. He has hit the net seven times in Ligue 1 after being highly prolific with Lillestrom in Norway. However, since he was signed for €4.5M last summer, a January move is very unlikely.
Our Take on Milan and David
Some factors indeed work in their favor, but it’s improbable they’ll disburse more than €35/40M for anybody, no matter how much they like him.
