Report: Arsenal, Everton and Leicester interested in Gent attacker Jonathan David

Premier League sides Arsenal, Everton and Leicester City are all reportedly interested in signing in-form Gent star Jonathan David.

According to a report from Jeunes Footeux, the Premier League trio are all keen on the Canada international, who has been in fine goalscoring form in 2019/20.

David, 20, has plundered 21 goals in 35 appearances for the Europa League outfit, and has also laid on 10 assists for teammates.

Those are hugely impressive statistics considering the youngster operates mainly as an attacking midfielder rather than a striker.

The interest in David, who has also hit an impressive 11 goals in 12 caps for his country, doesn’t just stop at English sides, with the likes of Lyon, RB Leipzig, Napoli and Lazio also intrigued.

TBR’s view – Arsenal and Everton may both have need

David could certainly be a name to listen out for in a few months time when the summer transfer window opens.

To have made 31 goal contributions already this season is very impressive, even is he does play his football over in Belgium.

Arguably Everton and Arsenal may both have need for a goalscoring midfielder this summer.

The Gunners may wish to try and offload the high-earning Mesut Ozil unless their is a big upturn in performance, and over at Goodison Park, Gylfi Sigurdsson has really struggled in recent times and has just two goals in 26 appearances this season.

Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester could be OK going forwards with the likes of Ayoze Perez and Dennis Praet, although the Irishman surely cannot be underestimated.
