So far this season, LOSC Lille forward Jonathan David has been in tremendous form, as Liverpool and Newcastle lurk.
What’s the story?
Presumably, Jürgen Klopp and Eddie Howe will be even more interested in David after what he did on Friday against Monaco.
That’s a fine record, and amazingly, it means he has scored just one Ligue 1 goal fewer than Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar combined.
Can Liverpool or Newcastle sign Jonathan David?
With form like this, you wouldn’t begrudge LOSC Lille for issuing a hands-off warning for clubs interested in their No.9.
However, it seems as if they would be willing to sell.
Le10sport believe David is likely to leave the French champions in the summer, which will surely interest the Reds and the Magpies.
In our view, both Premier League sides should make a real push for the wonderkid in 2022, before he attracts even more clubs to his talents.
At just 21, David is a gem, and will also surely become more and more expensive if he keeps this form up.
As a result, Liverpool and Newcastle need to get bidding quickly.
