After the 2-2 draw against Napoli last weekend, AC Milan must face losses in terms of personnel, especially in defense when defenders Pierre Kalulu and Marco Pellegrino will be absent for several weeks due to injury. love.
Therefore, Milan’s focus in the January 2024 transfer window is to find a new centre-back to strengthen their defence, although the San Siro team’s initial priority is to recruit a striker. Lille’s Jonathan David aims to strengthen the team’s attack.
Milan wants to recruit the Canadian player because he has speed, agility, the ability to shoot the ball with both feet, knows how to play counter-attack and also knows how to create assists for teammates. In the previous two seasons, the Lille striker played explosively with 39 goals and 4 assists.
However, after failing to recruit the Canadian striker last summer because the French team asked for too high a price. The San Siro team will not try to pursue the Canadian striker in January Instead, they will return to the negotiating table next June, when Jonathan David’s contract has only 12 months left before it expires in the summer of 2025.
In addition, David is currently in poor form this season having only scored 2 goals in 10 matches. That is also a reason why coach Pioli has not decided to recruit the Lille striker right in the winter transfer window, even though he really needs a quality center forward to ease the scoring burden on Olivier Giroud, who has scored 6 goals in 9 appearances in Serie A this season.
