There are some footballers who just look suited to a certain league, so anyone with fantastic pace and the ability to put the ball in the net will always be linked to the Premier League.
Jonathan David has been building an impressive reputation with Gent in Belgium. Canada international always looked quick and promising, but he’s become truly prolific this campaign and the bigger teams are starting to circle.
Jonathan said: “I want to become one of the best strikers in the world. That’s my goal. The Premier League is the best in the world and most competitive so obviously that is somewhere I would love to play in the future.”
It’s almost got to the point where he’s outgrown his current team, with 18 goals in 27 league matches this campaign and some impressive European performances too. On top of that, he’s scored 11 in 12 matches for the national team, so he’s yet to find a level he isn’t suited to.
The report goes on to say that Spurs, Gunners and Chelsea have all been strongly linked with him, so this Summer could be the ideal time for any of those clubs to make their move.
There’s no mention of a price tag or any kind of release clause at this point, so it will be interesting to see how much he’s worth and where David finally ends up.
