Arsenal are reportedly showing interest in signing Lille striker Jonathan David. However, Aston Villa and Newcastle United are also monitoring the situation.

Many also don’t know what Lille will demand for their star striker. However, they are going to ask a premium price for their star striker


Arsenal are reportedly tracking the situation of Lille striker Jonathan David. A number of reports also claim that they are ready to put in a mega offer for him in January. However, it also claims that Lille does not want to sell him without a ready replacement. The French giants are also going to ask mega money due to the price rise in the January transfer window.

Hence, Arsenal are also scouting other forward options in January. This is because the budgets in January for the top clubs in Europe are limited. Hence, Mikel Arteta will have to be careful with the budget. Therefore, there is a chance that Jonathan David is out of their price bracket. Hence, Arsenal will need some clarity on the future of their transfer targets.


Tottenham defender Matt Doherty has said that Jonathan David is an exciting player. He further said he will be one of the players to watch out in the World Cup. He added,

“I’d go for Jonathan David of Canada. The lad plays for Lille and has scored a lot of goals in the last few seasons. “It will be interesting to see how he gets on against the likes of Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen, quality defenders, so he’s my player to watch.”

Hence, it looks like Matt Doherty also admires his talent. However, the race for his signature is going to be tough. Newcastle United and Aston Villa are also interested. Both of the clubs are ready to back their managers in the January transfer market. Hence, Arteta will have to hope that Jonathan David gets excited by the prospect of playing in Europe this season.

Jonathan David will hope that he can impress Arsenal and other interested clubs during the World Cup. This will create a short window for him. However, there is a chance that he will be sold in the next summer transfer window. This is because he has a contract with Lille till 2025.
