Lille agree €30m fee with Gent for Jonathan David

Lille have agreed a €30m fee with Gent for prolific striker Jonathan DavidLa Voix du Nord reports.

The French club have been in talks with Gent for some time over a deal for the 20-year-old Canadian international.

Their original offer of €25m was turned down by Gent, but they have submitted an improved bid.

David will replace Victor Osimhen at Lille after the Nigerian moved to Napoli in a big money deal ten days ago.

The fee could reach €32m if certain objectives are met and there will be a sell-on clause included.

Barring any late twists, David will visit Lille on Monday to undergo medical tests ahead of his contract signing.

In the 2019-20 season, David scored 23 goals in 40 appearances, leading to significant interest across Europe.

Lille busy in the market

Despite also signing Burak Yilmaz, Lille still have an interest in Rangers striker Alfredo MorelosVDN reports.

However, the chances of a deal are slipping with Rangers not satisfied with Lille’s bid of around €15m.

Lille also confirmed the signing of Angel Gomes on Sunday with the 19-year-old immediately joining Boavista on loan.

Gomes, 19, left Manchester United at the end of his contract and has penned a five-year deal with Lille.
