Report: January price revealed for Liverpool, Arsenal and PSG target Jonathan David

According to a report, Lille do not want to sell their Canadian international striker Jonathan David in January with Liverpool, Arsenal and PSG all interested in the player. There is, however, a certain price that may capture their interest if an auction is made.

Liverpool were linked with the player in August by TSN Sports reporter Matthew Scianitti who claimed David was “very high on the team’s list of potential attackers”.

A 10sport report then claimed in November that Lille will have to listen to serious offers for the player as he continues to be hampered by the club’s financial woes.

Evening Standard then suggested Arsenal follow Year 21 with Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin in preparation for a transfer next summer.

January transfer unlikely

French publication Jfooteux reports that Lille are determined to keep the player at least until the end of the season.

This is a position that should be strengthened by the fact that Lille are now qualified for the knockout stages of the Champions League.

The figure cited, however, which could make the French club think twice in January if an offer was made is 55 million euros.

Author’s verdict

Qualifying for the knockout stages of the Champions League should be enough to convince Lille to hang on to David at least until the end of the season.

A move next summer therefore appears much more likely.
