Club insider backs Tottenham to complete signing of striker with 26 goals and 9 assists

By Mehdi Gokal -

Tottenham are making notable progress in their pursuit of Lille striker Jonathan David.

Club insider John Wenham suggests that the North London club could secure David’s signature this summer.

Wenham highlighted that David’s reasonable price makes him an attractive option for Tottenham, noting that his potential value on and off the pitch is substantial.

David, currently in the final year of his contract with Lille, is set to become a free agent next June.

This contract situation has reportedly lowered his transfer fee to approximately £25 million, making him an appealing target for Spurs.

The 24-year-old has long been on the Lilywhites’ radar and is currently showcasing his talents with his national team at the ongoing Copa America.

David had a remarkable campaign with Lille last season, scoring 26 goals and providing nine assists in 47 appearances across all competitions.

His versatility allows him to play both as a central striker and on the wing, fitting well with Tottenham’s tactical needs.

Wenham emphasised that signing David would be a strategic move for Spurs, offering both immediate contributions and high potential sell-on value.

Speaking to Tottenham News, Wenham said:

“I’m surprised by the fee which is being reported.

“He is an interesting player who can operate through the middle or out wide. Therefore, I think Tottenham will see this as a good market opportunity.

“It is a spectacular deal in terms of the price, especially considering David has a high potential sell-on value.

“As a result, this is a deal I could see the club getting done.”

As Spurs seek to bolster their squad, David’s profile aligns perfectly with the club’s objectives.

With his exceptional goal-scoring record and versatility, David could be a spectacular addition to Tottenham’s attacking line-up.

The club is likely to continue its efforts to finalise this deal, aiming to strengthen its squad for the upcoming season.
