Arsenal keen on 20-year-old midfielder – Club likely to ‘hit the jackpot’ with sale

Footballbible on Facebook and Twitter get up to date football-related news from the English Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga and other leagues around the World. News from Chelsea, Everton, Arsenal, Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool.

Arsenal and Leicester are among several clubs interested in Gent midfielder Jonathan David this summer.

The 20-year-old midfielder has been flying in Belgium this season, with 19 goals and ten assists in all competitions so far.

That form has attracted interest from around Europe, according to Jeunes Footeux, who say Arsenal and Leicester are among his potential suitors.

Those pair, alongside Everton, are the Premier League sides keeping an eye on the midfielder while clubs from Italy, France and Germany are all also keen.

The website report that Lyon were keen on David in the January transfer window and could make a move in the summer but RB Leipzig, Napoli and Roma are all ‘interested’ as well.

Should Arsenal or Leicester want to make a move too, it’s estimated David would cost around €20m, with Gent expected to ‘hit the jackpot’ should they decide to sell their young star.

David has a contract with the Belgian side until 2023, meaning they are in no rush or under any pressure to sell and, if the young American continues to add to his numbers, his price tag is sure to rise as we get closer to the window.
