Leicester City have joined Arsenal and Everton in pursuing impressive Gent attacking midfielder Jonathan David.
According to Jeunes Footeaux, the Premier League trio are battling RB Leipzig, AS Roma and Lyon for David’s services.
The 20-year-old has racked up a staggering 31 goal contributions for Gent this season, coming in the form of 21 goals and 10 assists.
L’Equipe report that the versatile attacker could be snapped up for a bargain fee of just £18million in the summer amid the heavy, but unsurprising interest.
READ LEICESTER VERDICT
David’s statistics truly need to be seen to be believed, but he’s the reigning Canadian Footballer of the Year for a reason.
With 12 caps for the Canada national team already, David looks like he is following in the footsteps of some of his international team-mates by breaking out in Europe.
Even if his valuation rises, I think the statistics suggest that David could prove to be a monumental capture for Leicester if the Foxes can persuade him to move to the King Power Stadium.
When interested in such exciting talents, Champions League football could prove to be a key factor in the player’s decision.
With that being said, Leicester will probably be in with a good chance of attracting him over Arsenal and Everton, at least, if their push for a top-four spot can be maintained.
