AC Milan are looking to add a striker to the team in the summer and Jonathan David is one of their top targets. In a recent interview, the Lille star was asked about the links with the Rossoneri and admitted that the interest is ‘flattering’.
Olivier Giroud will turn 38 later this year and he could leave Milan in the summer, when his contract will expire. Therefore, the Rossoneri directors are expected to sign a striker and Jonathan David has been linked with them ever since the summer.
The Canadian international has struggled a bit this season, currently on six goals in the league, and Milan are hoping that a discount can be obtained. However, everything will depend on the competition in the summer.
In an interview with Telefoot, the striker himself was asked about the links with Milan, Chelsea, Napoli, and Atletico Madrid: “When you’re young, these are the clubs you watch and think about. It’s flattering, I appreciate that,” David responded.
In addition to David, Milan are also monitoring the likes of Benjamin Sesko of Leipzig and Joshua Zirkzee of Bologna. A lot can change in the upcoming months, in other words, and the future of Stefano Pioli must also be decided.
