Lille make official €25m bid for Gent star Jonathan David

Lille have become the latest club to submit a bid for Gent striker Jonathan David, L’Equipe reports.

The Ligue 1 side have made a firm offer of €25m in recent days for the free-scoring Canadian.

With Loic Remy leaving for Benevento and Victor Osimhen in talks with Napoli, LOSC have launched their attacking rebuild.

Lille have a four-man shortlist of attackers which includes David and Fluminense talent Marcos Paulo.

After Borussia Monchengladbach had a €25m offer for David turned down, it seems likely that Lille will have to do better.

According to HLN in Belgium, Gent are looking for €30-35m to sell the 20-year-old.

L’Equipe claims David is ‘seduced’ by the prospect of joining Lille, a club with a good history of developing players.

And Mohamed Bouhasfi of RMC Sport goes one step further, saying David has an agreement with LOSC.

Several Premier League and Bundesliga clubs, including the aforementioned Gladbach, also like David.

In just two seasons with the first team at Genk, he has scored 26 league goals and delivered 12 assists in 50 games.

David has also proven himself on the European stage with four goals and two assists in 12 Europa League matches.
