RB Salzburg reject €30m offer from Lille for Patson Daka

Red Bull Salzburg plan to keep free-scoring striker Patson Daka after turning away Lille, Salzburger Nachrichten report.

Daka, 21, has netted 27 goals this season for the Austrian Bundesliga champions and is attracting interest.

But after selling Erling Haaland to Borussia Dortmund in January, the Red Bull club don’t want to lose their latest striking sensation.

Sporting director Christoph Freund made that clear when asked about Daka’s future.

“We still have big goals with him,” Freud told Salzburger Nachrichten. “It is not our plan to hand him over now.”

French side Lille proposed €30m for Daka, but even that wasn’t enough to convince Salzburg.

Lille are looking for a new striker with Victor Osimhen on the brink of joining Napoli.

With Daka seemingly out of the question for now, they are trying to sign Gent forward Jonathan David.

Daka is certain to move to a bigger European league in future, but for now the Zambian sensation is poised to stay at Salzburg.
