Tottenham among ‘the ones to watch’ in the race for £25m-rated Chelsea target

By Saikat -

Jonathan David has been linked with the move away from LOSC Lille this summer and the Canadian international is on the radar of multiple Premier League clubs.

The striker is reportedly a target for West Ham United, Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United.

However, journalist Ben Jacobs believes that the striker is more likely to end up at Chelsea or Tottenham. He believes that West Ham are focused on signing the Aston Villa striker Jhon Duran and Manchester United are closing in on Joshua Zirkzee.

“Jonathan David is available in the region of £25m, and that’s seen as a bargain in the market. West Ham are focused on Jhon Duran. Chelsea and Tottenham are the ones to watch there and it’s less likely that Manchester United move because of Joshua Zirkzee,” Jacobs said on PlayBack.

Therefore, Chelsea and Tottenham could be the front-runners to sign the Canadian international this summer. David scored 26 goals in all competitions last season and he could prove to be a quality acquisition for the London clubs.

Chelsea need to find a quality alternative to Nicolas Jackson who has failed to impress in the Premier League. Chelsea were overly dependent on Cole Palmer last season and they need more support in the attack.

As for Tottenham, they are still looking for the ideal replacement for Harry Kane and David would be the ideal acquisition. Spurs missed a reliable finisher last season.

He has shown his quality in Ligue 1 and he has the attributes to succeed in the Premier League as well.

A move to Tottenham will be an exciting opportunity for him. They have a talented squad and a quality manager. They could be pushing for major trophies in the coming seasons and David will want to be a part of the revolution at the north London club.

It will be interesting to see if Spurs come forward with an official offer to sign the player now.
