Arsenal transfer target Jonathan David set to quit Lille next summer amid Premier League interest, reveals his agent

JONATHAN DAVID will leave Lille at the end of the season – putting Premier League clubs on notice, his agent said.

Already this season, the forward has 15 goals in 26 appearances, attracting transfer attention from across Europe.

He is contracted with Lille until 2025, but his agent revealed they will push to leave next summer.

Nick Mavromaras said on Radio Canada:  "For us, the goal is to finish the season in Lille, but it will be his last season there for several reasons.

"I think the Premier League is a good option for him. I think that he likes Spain a lot also because he likes the feeling of the ball and the very technical players.

"These two leagues are a big priority for him, but nothing is excluded."

Real Madrid and Arsenal are also among the club believed to be tracking the Canadian international.

David, 21, has been hailed as one of the most promising talents on the market right now, but could come at a cost.

Agent Mavromaras added: "I can’t say the price today. It’s down to Lille. But in the end, that’s football.

"Jonathan isn’t going to show it, but he knows he is one of the best young forwards in the world.

"There’s also Erling Haaland who could cost between €75m and €100m.

"If you want to be part of that list, you have to learn to manage the pressure."

David played his youth football in Ottawa before joining Greek's Gent, where he stayed from 2018-2020 before joining Lille.
