Lille president admits they are finally ready to sell Arsenal target

Lille is now prepared to sell Jonathan David as the Canadian striker enters the final year of his contract.

David has been one of the top goalscorers in Ligue 1 over the past few seasons and has long been on Arsenal’s radar.

Arsenal needs a new striker this summer, and while David hasn’t been among their first-choice targets recently, circumstances could change.

With Benjamin Sesko turning them down and Victor Osimhen proving too expensive, a move for David by the Gunners wouldn’t be surprising.

Lille President Olivier Letang has admitted that David will be sold this summer, which significantly boosts Arsenal’s chances of signing him.

He said, as quoted by The Sun:

“Leny Yoro and Jonathan David can leave the club this summer.

“Both have the ‘exit voucher’ due to their contract situation”.

Just Arsenal Opinion

David has been linked with a move to Arsenal for several seasons, and the striker clearly has what it takes to succeed in our team.

However, we have other targets who are above him on the pecking order, and we trust our board to only sign him if they are sure he will do well on their team.


So here are some simple rules which I must insist commenters follow….

You agree not to give any personal abuse to other Arsenal fans. Everyone is allowed to hold their own opinions even if you disagree with them. It COSTS NOTHING TO BE POLITE TO OTHER ARSENAL FANS.

  1. I really appreciate our team players for a displayed performance in the previous epl season.
    But, my urge is that as Mr. Arteta has been good in his transfers,
    WE NEED A TYPICAL STRIKER to avoid another disappointment.

  2. I think Arsenal isn’t at all in need of a striker as Havertz suits perfectly the number 9.I think Arsenal should focus on a top midfielder.
    As well Timber seems to be the right man for the left-back position.So not even the defense needs to be strengthened.Eventually some good substitutes would be needed but for this shouldn’t be needed too much money.Some youth with great potential should work fine.
    And besides if they sign in an expansive striker Arsenal would sooner or later regret it because there is the 65 £ million Havertz.Even if the striker would show better results than Havertz in the 9 position then Havertz would get a substitute,which would represent a loos for Arsenal as paying 65 £ for only a substitute is really too much.

    Arsenal till my last breath!
