Lille to make improved €30m bid for Jonathan David

Lille are ready to make an improved bid of €30m for Gent striker Jonathan DavidLa Voix du Nord reports.

The Canadian marksman has been LOSC’s number one target to replace Victor Osimhen, who will be announced as a Napoli player later today.

But with news that other clubs, including Leeds United, had outbid Lille for David, they began to explore other options.

Despite reports of Alfredo Morelos, Patson Daka and Islam Slimani being targeted, David remains Lille’s priority.

And according to LVDN, the French club will offer €30m without bonuses for the 20-year-old.

This will be Lille’s third offer for David after having €25m + €5m and €27m + €3m offers knocked back.

If the deal is concluded at €30m, David will become the most expensive player leaving Belgium’s Jupiler Pro League.

In two seasons playing for Gent’s first team, David has racked up 37 goals and 15 assists.

Yilmaz en route

Lille will also add Turkey veteran Burak Yilmaz to their ranks in a deal that won’t affect the David transfer.

Yilmaz, 35, will replace Loic Remy who quit the club at the end of his contract.

He will join on a free transfer from Besiktas and is due to undergo a medical on Saturday morning.
