      Comments Off on Arsenal one of several top clubs eyeing move for Jonathan David

According to the Sun via Jeunes Footeux, Arsenal are one of the numerous top clubs that are keeping a close eye on Gent wonderkid Jonathan David.

The 20-year-old attacking midfielder has been sensational for the Belgian outfit this season, scoring 19 goals and registering 10 assists in 35 matches across all competitions this term.

The Gunners are joined in their chase for the ace by Premier League sides Leicester and Everton, as well as top European outfits Lyon, Napoli, Lazio and RB Leipzig.

The report claims that the Canadian youngster is valued at €20m (£18m). Jonathan David made his senior debut for Canada at the age of 18; the ace has bagged 11 goals in 12 outings for his country.

With Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Mesut Ozil both over 30 years old, it looks wise for Arsenal to start tracking some promising attackers that can help the likes of wonderkid Gabriel Martinelli lead the Gunners in the future.

Jonathan David’s versatility will be a massive appeal to interested clubs. The ace is primarily deployed in a central attacking midfield role, but the champion also has experience of playing as a second striker or lone centre-forward.
