The transfer window has closed, but Milan’s lights are already pointing towards their next target: Lille’s Jonathan David.
La Gazzetta dello Sport report that Milan actually made a late move for Jonathan David on Thursday evening, trying for a loan deal. David has always been admired by the management and he would be a top signing, certainly not an emergency solution.
It proved to be impossible to pull off the operation with such little time left, but his contract expires in 2025 and Milan’s late move shows that between January and June they will try again in view of next summer.
Since he started playing professionally he has scored 95 goals for his various club sides. He is the second-top scorer for the Canadian national team after Cyle Larin with 25 goals.
In 2021 he won the Ligue 1 title and the Super Cup with Lille. In 2019, he was the top scorer in the Belgian Pro League with 18 goals. He has also already scored twice in three league games this season.
