Arsenal adds exciting Ligue 1 striker to their transfer wishlist

Arsenal has added Jonathan David to their transfer wishlist as they begin to plan for life without Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah.

Lille star David is one of the attractive attackers in Europe and his development at the French club is impressive.

Arsenal has strengthened their midfield and defence in recent transfer windows and they will now look to do the same with their attack.

Todofichajes maintains that they like Sevilla’s Youssef En-Nesyri, but the Spanish club’s high demands have forced them to turn elsewhere.

They are now looking to bring David to the Premier League at the next opportunity they get.

At 21, David will fit right into the plans of Arsenal, which have seen them invest in younger players in recent transfer windows.

The Canadian played an important role in helping Lille win the French Ligue 1 last season and has 6 goals from 9 league matches this season.

The report says it will be hard for Lille to sell him in the middle of a season, but Arsenal is willing to wait until next summer to get their man.

His current deal expires in 2025, which gives Lille the advantage to negotiate a decent transfer fee and they value him at €40M.

    Has anyone seen the goal Mavropanos scored? I sincerely, sincerely hope Edu MA didnt make that deal permanent.

    Obligarion to buy if they stayed, option to buy, if they relegated.

    I think we need a tall, strong and agile target man type striker to trouble defenders. This guy is only 5’9”…

      That’s what it says on Wikipedia, but he looks taller and other sites have him at 6ft or close to. I liked the look of him tbh, remember hearing about him a while back.

        @Davi
        He does look the part. But I’m more for a target man type striker like Lukaku who bullies defenders. We have more than enough quick dribblers in our squad…

          True – I’m thinking he looks like a young Auba but maybe a bit better in the approach play and not as good a finisher yet. I don’t really know though tbf
