Report: Tottenham want to sign Jonathan David from Lille

Italian outlet CalcioMercato reveal that Tottenham Hotspur are ‘very interested’ in signing Lille and Canada striker Jonathan David.

The 22-year-old didn’t have the greatest of World Cups, but he is a fine talent. He has proven his class for Lille since joining them in 2020, and it’s only a matter of time before he gets a move to a bigger club.

Tottenham are apparently keen.

Tottenham want to sign Jonathan David from Lille

Harry Kane is Tottenham’s main man up front and that will not change as long as he’s at the club.

However, one of Spurs’ biggest problems over the years is that the Englishman plays almost every game. He barely ever gets a break, which is not healthy at all.

Richarlison was brought in last summer, and he can definitely do a job up top. However, it looks like Antonio Conte wants to bring in another centre-forward to strengthen his attack even more.

The report claims that David is the player Spurs are looking at, and they apparently have a fight on their hands to secure his signature as Arsenal are also looking to sign him following Gabriel Jesus’ injury.

David, who still has over two-and-a-half years left on his Lille contract, has scored nine goals and provided three assists in 15 appearances in Ligue 1 this season.

TBR View:

David is a really exciting talent.

The 22-year-old has scored more league goals than Lionel Messi this season, and he has been a fine player for Lille since joining them from Gent back in the summer of 2020.

The Canadian is really quick and is usually clinical in front of goal. That makes him a brilliant option for a counter-attacking side like Tottenham, who are really dangerous on the break.

It will be interesting to see what happens with David in 2023. We don’t think a January transfer is likely, but at the end of this season, the Canadian is expected to be on the move.
