Jonathan David would be available for sale this summer in an enormous boost to Arsenal, who have been looking to add him to their squad.
The Sun confirms the Gunners are still monitoring the Canada international, and they would look to add him to their squad at the end of this campaign.
Mikel Arteta’s side needs to bolster their attack when this season ends as they rebuild their team under the Spanish boss.
Arsenal could lose Eddie Nketiah and Alexandre Lacazette when their contracts expire in the summer, and they have a wishlist of new attackers who they will sign.
In a boost to their chances of landing David, transfer insider, Fabrizio Romano has revealed that the 22-year-old will leave Lille this summer.
He tweeted: “Lille are already prepared to sell some players this summer. Jonathan David’s rise from Jan 2018 has been excellent and top clubs have his name in the list. 🔴⭐️ #Lille
“David’s now Lille top scorer with 17 goals this season, 3 in UCL – and he’s just 22.
“Price tag around €50m.”
Just Arsenal Opinion
David has been in stunning form in this campaign, and he features highly on Arsenal’s list of targets.
He is developing rapidly, and he has shown enough to merit a move to the Emirates.
It remains unclear if he is our transfer priority, but if we would sign up to three strikers, then he should be among them.
Emmanuel Dennis is better than him (having PL experience) and also less expensive
He has No epl experience, so our money go down d drain if he fail…… I will rather have Jesus
Please bring GJ. I’m sure most of us can’t wait for the deal to be sealed. He will add still and stability to the team and more attacking options. If he is good enough to start for MC in a CL semi final and scoring four goals. I believe he should be good enough to play for Arsenal FC. COYG.
Baca fans are complaining about Auba ball control and work rate…. I prefer Nunez anytime
This should be non of our damn business.
If we going for Jonathan David, why not have Gabriel Jesus instead, they both thick the same boxes, Gabriel has blended with the 🇬🇧 uk environment so no adaptation injuries or sickness,
We probably could add Coast Gakpo or Darwin Nunez with Pepe as another option.
Let arsenal admn think of GJ as compared to others on the radar.
