Report – Chelsea battling Arsenal for New York born striker

Arsenal is now facing competition from Chelsea for the signature of Jonathan David.

The New York-born Canadian international has been a long-term target of the Gunners who scouted him while he played for Gent in Belgium.

He now turns out for Lille in France and he has proven to be one of the finest recent signings in the French top flight.

Arsenal needed to bolster their attack in the last transfer window and he was one of the players on their shopping list.

However, they opted for Gabriel Jesus instead and the Brazilian has been in fine form.

David has also continued to improve and his form could tempt Arsenal to return for him.

However, a report in the Daily Mail reveals they are not alone and Chelsea has become interested in him as well.

The Blues signed Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the last transfer window and they could move for him as a long-term replacement for the Gabon star.

Just Arsenal Opinion

David has been a very fine player so far and he continues to deliver when he takes to the pitch.

We have Eddie Nketiah as a backup to Jesus, but David is a more accomplished player.

We can sign him and send Nketiah out on loan to develop himself further, or even sell the England Under21 record goal scorer.

  1. Send Nkethia on loan or sell him after signing Jonathan David from Lile because an option believes so? This is too harsh a suggested suggestion for my liking.
    Can’t Arsenal continue to keep Eddie Nkethia in their ranks even after they’ve signed Jonathan David in next January transfer window? But if at all Arsenal want to sign him and did.
    And besides, I’ve not goggled Jonathan David again to remember if he falls within the current age profile of between 19-22-25 years old of new players recruitment at Arsenal. But even if he does, I wouldn’t know at all if Arsenal will go into a bidding war with Chelsea to get his signature.
    But in all honesty, I did several times advocate the signing of Jonathan David to Arsenal to sign him during the last summer transfer window. But all my efforts want for Arsenal in this regard was to no avail. As the club went after Gabriel Jesus and signed him. Which has turned out to be good for us Arsenal.
    But what are us seeking for and talking about it if not our quest totts see Arsenal win the EPL title again this season? And I think and believe this is very okay. For, on my own part, I personally unequivocally believe that Arsenal will remain at the top of the Premier League just before the Qatar 2022 World Cup has kicked off. As by that time, Arsenal will have in the Epl beaten So’ton, Nott For, Chelsea and Wolves all winnable games for the Gunners to win them all and keep Arsenal remain at the top of League unfailingly.

  2. Nah, nothing special about Jonathan David, plays like Emmanuel Dennis,
    We could get ZAha instead, quick feet, strong, Ariel dominance.
