Inter Milan joins Arsenal in the race for Ligue 1 striker

Inter Milan wants to sign Jonathan David as a replacement for Lautaro Martinez.

The Canadian striker has been delivering some top-class performances for Lille in Ligue 1.

However, he is destined for the top of the game and should sign for a much bigger European club soon.

Standard Sports reports that Arsenal has been scouting him with the Gunners keen to improve their attacking options.

After deciding against signing a striker in the last transfer window, they will bolster that position in the summer.

David is one of the finest options on their wishlist.

However, they are not the only club that wants his signature and Todofichajes claims Inter Milan is also keen to sign him.

The Italians could cash in on Martinez for the right price and they would invest a part of the sum on David.

Just Arsenal Opinion

David has been improving and he has done very well in his career for a 22-year-old.

At Arsenal, he would get the right coaching and environment to become even more lethal in front of goal.

Hopefully, if he prefers to move to England, that would make things easier for Arsenal.

    1. While we are here trying to fix our self-generated striker crisis, our own $100M rated striker celebrated a hat trick for Barcelona today – three impressive backflips too. Laud a merci!

    2. That came against a very very poor Valencia side. They have the second worst defence just after Levante in that poor poor league. Is this comment a jibe against our manager? All ex players & pundits agree with Mikel’s decision to let him so, so be it. Even Balogon would score a brace against Valencia.

  1. He’s an Arsenal fan and Henry is his idol so I think we could pip Inter if we really want to sign him. He is one of three striker options we should be looking at along with Calvert Lewin who best fits what Arteta wants from his centre forward I.e hold up play and will get on the end of crosses and Osimehn who will be the most difficult to sign of the three. We also need a backup strike option to replace Laca and Origi is a no- brainer. Has vast experience at 27 years old and has a knack of scoring goals in Important moments which will be invaluable for us. If we offer him a good financial package and a genuine chance to be a starter I’m sure we will be an attractive club for him. Balogun comes back from loan as third choice as Eddie heads for the exit.
    Strikeforce next season:
    Calvert Lewin/David
    Origi
    Balogun

  2. he can only be an option if we change our tactics as he can’t be stranded up top like Auba or required to come so deep, like Laca, to get proper service, as he will struggle for goal-scoring opportunities

    1. 👍That’s why I believe Calvert Lewin is our number 1 target and is the best bet to join us this summer

      1. I like certain attributes he possesses but he’s been too injury-prone this season and his goal return per game stats are a little too low to carry the load without us acquiring a suitable alternative, which might be a bridge too far for this club from a financial capacity, especially if we’re planning on addressing our midfield situation in the same window…just saying

    1. That’s a good shout and you bring in Origi on a free transfer to be our experienced back up option/2nd choice striker.

  3. Origi would want assured game time so unless Arsenal assures him of being their no.1 striker he may not come. Come to think of it, Origi is clinical and also has good hold up play so it wouldnt be a bad idea. If we get either David/DCL/Braha one of them could play along with Origi or could rotate depending on form and availability.

  4. Why not get Emmanuel Dennis, IMO, I would prefer Gianluca scamacca, that’s if he’s willing to join us,
    Origi isn’t a bad idea but I think he’s too soft, we need tough players like mane and salah.
    I trust Arteta to get the best of forwards and the midfield.
