Bristol City receive official bid for 28-year-old



Bristol City have received a bid from an Italian side for Milan Djuric, The Bristol Post reports.

Djuric has been the subject of interest from Italian second tier side Salernitana and Bristol City manager Lee Johnson confirmed that they had received a bid for the striker.

The 28-year-old is currently on his route back from injury, playing the second half of Tuesday night’s pre-season friendly win over Cheltenham Town.

The Bosnia and Herzegovina international, who stands at 6ft 7in tall, signed for the Robins in January 2017 and has scored five goals in 31 games for the club since arriving at Ashton Gate.

Speaking of Djuric’s potential return to Italy, Johnson said: “We’ll have to see. I think it was a bid that came in that wasn’t anywhere near what we paid for him even, so that gives you a good marker of where that bid was.”

The Verdict

Djuric offers a different dimension for Bristol City and he is a useful squad player to have.

Given his massive frame, the target man can be used to hold the ball up and protect a lead or be sent on in search of an equaliser with his aerial threat.

If the Robins do not receive an adequate offer, they are under no pressure to sell their man.
