English Premier League top flight club, Arsenal are reportedly set to seal the transfer of Lille striker Jonathan David for around €35million.
The Canada international has shone in his time in Ligue 1, and has a fine record of 11 goals in 17 league matches so far this season.
The Gunners are said to be willing to pay the €35m required to lure David to the Emirates Stadium, according to the report, and it sounds like his desire to move to England could make this deal realistic.
David first caught the eye as a youngster at Gent, and he’s now establishing himself even further in a more competitive European league.
According to Todo Fichajes, David is now keen on a possible step up again as he eyes a move to the Premier League, with Arsenal very interested in snapping him up.
The 21-year-old Frenchman is nearing the end of his contract, so Arsenal would do well to strengthen up front to ensure they have the depth to cope this season.
