Tottenham register interest in Lille striker Jonathan David

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly among several clubs eyeing a summer move for versatile Lille forward Jonathan David, according to Sky Sports.

They want to sign a prolific striker to lead the line next season, and David has emerged as a possible option.

Ange Postecoglou wants to revamp his squad this summer, and some high-profile players could leave the club, including Richarlison.

The Brazilian scored 11 times in 28 Premier League games last season, but Spurs are looking for a more prolific striker to help them close the gap on the top four.

While they will not force Richarlison out of the club, they are reportedly willing to listen to offers for the Brazil international.

Saudi Pro League clubs have previously expressed interest in Richarlison, and a big-money proposal would be enough to sign him.

David would be a decent replacement for Richarlison

David would be an ideal replacement for Richarlison. The Canadian international registered 19 goals and four assists in 34 Ligue 1 appearances last term.

He bagged 26 goals and nine assists in 47 appearances across all competitions.

David has been a reliable outlet for Lille for the past four seasons, leading the line with aplomb.

The former KAA Gent striker has netted 84 goals and provided 18 assists in 184 games for Lille.

David is eager to embark on a new experience, and he will finally get his wish with Lille willing to let him go this summer.

He is entering the final year of his contract with the French club so they’ll be open to a cut-price sale, which plays into Tottenham’s hands.

However, Spurs must act quickly to lure David to the Premier League, with the striker also attracting interest from Serie A clubs.
