Lille forward and Ligue 1 star Jonathan David has given Premier League teams the “green light” to sign him after admitting he would to like to play for a bigger club, as reported by The Mirror.
“I was always watching European football on TV. So, for me that was always the goal. For me it was, I only wanted to go to Europe,” Ligue 1 star said.
“The next step is always growing, having more ambition, a bigger club I think. Every player wants to play for a massive club in their life. So I think if I had the chance to do it, I’ll go for it for sure.
“I think they’re two different leagues [the Premier League and La Liga]. But I think I can adapt to both for sure. And I think with the experience that I’ve had here in France, it will help me a lot if I need to adapt to some place else a lot faster. So yeah I think both leagues suit me.”
The Ligue 1 star has developed a good reputation and this season he’s been very productive scoring nine goals in twelve games.
He seems to be best suited to playing a central striking role rather than operating from a wider position, although he can do so.
The Canadian bagged 19 goals from 48 outings for Lille last season. He has started impressively this term with nine goals and three assists from just 12 games.
The 22-year-old is not a traditional number nine with an aerial presence, but likes to dribble at pace and can be considered as a typical fox in the box.
David is currently valued at €45 million by Transfermarkt. At such a price, he would be a bargain signing for Arsenal as he is just entering the prime of his career.
