Tottenham Hotspur Eyeing Bargain Deal for Lille Striker Jonathan David


Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly considering a move for LOSC Lille striker Jonathan David, according to journalist Ben Jacobs. The North London club is looking to bolster their attack ahead of the upcoming season and David has emerged as a potential target.

“As far as strikers are concerned, the most experienced name with pedigree at the moment is Jonathan David who is available at a steal,” Jacobs said on The London is Blue Podcast. “I’d keep an eye on Spurs as well and I’m told that Lille will accept well under £30m, around €30m instead of pounds, so around £25m.”

The 24-year-old Canadian forward has been a standout performer for Lille, racking up 35 goal contributions (26 goals, 9 assists) in the last season alone. His impressive form extends to the international stage, further enhancing his reputation with his performances at the ongoing Copa America.

David’s contract with Lille expires in a year, making him an attractive proposition for clubs looking to avoid a hefty transfer fee. Reports suggest that Lille is willing to let him go for as little as £25 million, a price tag that could tempt Tottenham.

Tottenham manager Ange Postecoglou is reportedly keen on adding a top-quality striker to his squad, with the belief that it could elevate the team to a new level. Spurs might have opted against replacing Harry Kane last summer, but David’s availability and price point could make him a compelling option this time around.

Whether Tottenham decides to pursue David remains to be seen, but Jacobs’ comments suggest that the club is at least keeping a close eye on the situation. With his impressive goalscoring record and bargain price tag, David could be a valuable addition to the Tottenham Hotspur squad.
