The latest comes from the well-respected Steven Goff of the Washington Post, saying that the reds have received a $10 million bid for Jozy Altidore from Jiangsu Suning FC. The deal would reportedly pay the American forward over eight million per season.
As Chinese league's transfer window opens, Jiangsu Suning FC making a transfer offer of ~$10m to @TorontoFC for #usmnt striker @JozyAltidore. Contract would pay him ~$25m for 3 years. Altidore, 29, signed extension with TFC in Feb through '22 season. This year, he'll make $6.3m.— Steven Goff (@SoccerInsider) July 1, 2019
Altidore recently re-signed with Toronto FC, and is under contract until 2022. Due to injury he has played only nine matches for the club this season. He does have five goals and three assists during that time.
If Toronto FC, and Altidore, agree to the deal, it would be the second straight window where they have transferred out a designated player. Sebastian Giovinco left for Saudi Arabian club Al-Hilal during the winter transfer window.
For the moment, it appears Toronto’s top priority is to bring in one, potential two, players on TAM. Rumours are that they are close to getting at least one deal done when the transfer window opens on July 7.
