According to a source, AC Milan intends to try to sign Jonathan David on more advantageous terms by taking advantage of his contract predicament and decline in form.

Calciomercato.com reports that, with Luka Jovic having failed to establish a meaningful role and Noah Okafor now being regarded as Rafael Leao’s replacement, Geoffrey Moncada and the Milan management are exploring the possibility of bringing in a striker as early as the January transfer window.

Stefano Pioli is faced with a decision regarding Olivier Giroud’s two-match ban: play an underperforming Jovic and hope he finds his game, or start Okafor off the bench, as he has done in the past, down the middle.

The troubling conundrum is precisely the reason the Rossoneri are still keeping a careful eye on Jonathan David, as they attempted in vain to recruit him from Lille at the closure of the summer transfer season.

Milan may try to take advantage of the Canadian’s poor play this season—he only scored two goals in the league this year, compared to 24 goals the previous season—and the fact that his contract expires in June 2025.

His value will undoubtedly drop from this point on, and when the window reopens in a few months, Moncada intends to make an offer that includes a paid loan and a purchase option.

Adams of Montpellier, whose current valuation is €15 million, is still an option. He has had a fantastic season, scoring seven goals in 11 games.
