Lille forward Jonathan David has made it known that he is interested in making a move to the Premier League in the future.
Arsenal, West Ham and Liverpool have all been linked with the Canadian in recent months, and asked about his plans by French TV at the weekend, David admitted that a switch to England is something he’d been keen on doing:
“The Premier League? Yes, it attracts me, it attracts everyone. It is the most competitive Championship in the world. It’s a very nice championship.”
David is believed to be on a shortlist of targets as the Gunners look for a new number nine. Real Sociedad’s Alexander Isak and Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin are also said to be on the London club’s radar but David would likely be the cheapest of the three.
It was reported back in December that the 22-year-old’s asking price was around the €55m (£46m) mark and, if that is true, he would cost a lot less than Isak, in particular, whose release clause is currently set at €90m (£75m).
