GdS: Milan’s attack in need of repair – €40m striker tops wish list

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan want to sign a striker during the January transfer window and the number one choice for the moment remains Jonathan David, a report claims.

La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) report this morning how January is often called the ‘repair window’ and Milan have a squad that needs to be repaired. The first is the classic one, fixing something that is broken: in this case the Milan defence, which has only Fikayo Tomori as a fit senior centre-back option.

The second is in the sense of remedying the mistakes made, i.e. not having signed a suitable deputy to Olivier Giroud in the summer. For this reason, if Milan’s pursuit of a defender in January is mandatory, that on an attacker is not as certain but is very probable.

The main target for the attack remains Jonathan David, Lille’s Canadian striker . The initial valuation of the player was around €60m but a not too excellent performance in this first part of the season and above all the expiry of the contract set for 2025 will certainly bring the price down.

At the moment the requested amount would be around €40m, a price that is still very high but if the price were to drop further, the Rossoneri would enter the scene. David is seen as a perfect profile because he young but already with experience behind him.

  1. I’m so sick of this David news every week on every rossoneri platform. This is not happening for 40 millions or even 30 millions. They won’t spend that much on him and I’m glad cause he’s no different to Okafor.

    Should’ve go for Scamacca when they had a chance. Now we’re probably going to see some moneyball first season Ligue 1 wonder for 15 millions and expect him to produce wonders immediately.

  2. I don’t know. There is only once in a lifetime opportunity to go and get Mbappe without a transfer fee. It is more than possible with the growth decree and a good sponsor…Aramco wouldn’t mind paying Mbappe to promote its brand and take him from their Qatari rivals that own PSG.

    1. I’m not 100% confident that its actually feasible but we should most definitely test his heart on this as Mbappe is a professed AC Milan fan since childhood and has even said he wouldn’t consider any other Serie A teams but he would certainly also have to make some sacrifices on his salary and sign on requests but i’m pretty sure he is so filthy rich that its probably not the decisive factor of his next move.
      It would be an absolute statement transfer so if the management doesn’t even try to aquirre him it would be a statement in itself.

      1. Yes, this management no. But the one I’m talking about would probably make it their no. 1 goal because the Qataris that own PSG are their geopolitical rivals. It would be a big victory for them, money would not matter, trust me.

    2. It would be nice but I don’t see it happening now. His wages will be too high plus he wants to go to a team challenging every season for trophies. But it’s a good dream

      1. Yes, that would be Milan in the case I’m talking about. Aramco is the Saudi oil company worth 2.2 trillion USD. Paying for Mbappe for them is like buying a lollipop for you, even less.

    3. That would be lovely but remember this management struggled to sign Thuram and Taremi and didn’t even try to sign Gundogan. Also Mbappé wants to win, he’s not coming to play with average guys like Reijnders or Krunic or Pulisic.
