Juventus sporting director Cristiano Giuntoli has identified Lille’s Jonathan David as a top option to bolster the club’s attack.
The Bianconeri are seemingly willing to cut their losses on Dusan Vlahovic this summer, open to selling him for around €70-80m in order to pick up a new centre forward.
Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain have both been linked with the Serbian striker, but a deal isn’t expected to be reached imminently.
Pages two to seven of today’s Tuttosport detail how Giuntoli already found success betting on a Lille forward in the past, taking Victor Osimhen to Napoli, and now he’s keen to repeat the move by bringing David to Juventus.
The 23-year-old Canadian striker has a €60m price tag and is contracted to the Ligue 1 side until June 2025.
New Bianconeri signing Timothy Weah discussed David when reflecting on his first few days in Turin, saying: “David is one of my best friends, he asked me questions. I told him that if he decides to come to Juventus, he must be ready to work hard.”
Last season, David scored 26 goals and provided four assists in 40 appearances across all competitions.
