Jonathan David only has a year left on his deal at Lille

Jonathan David has an incredible goalscoring record, netting 37 goals in 83 appearances in Belgium with Gent, which earned him a move to Ligue 1 side, Lille, where his goalscoring pace has remained, scoring 84 goals in 183 games. (TransferMarkt)

His goalscoring pedigree has placed him on a number of big clubs’ radars this summer, with Tottenham being one of those interested.

Reports started to emerge in late June that Spurs were looking into Jonathan David with Football.London claiming that the Canadian international is on the club’s shortlist of strikers to sign this summer.

Football Insider fuelled the fire of links between Spurs and David as they claimed Tottenham had made contacts with the player’s agents over a move.

Talks over David have gone cold for Spurs

Sky Sports journalist, Dharmesh Sheth, was quizzed on Tottenham’s links to David when on the Last Word On Spurs podcast and admitted that he did hear earlier in the window Jonathan David was a player that Tottenham, alongside a number of clubs, were looking at.

However, the rumours over David and Tottenham have ‘gone a bit cold’ according to Sheth, leaving people unsure as to whether the club will reignite their interest in pursuing a move or not.

David is however still on international duty with his country, Canada, in the United States as he competes for the Copa America, which perhaps is why there’s been little progress on a deal.

Spurs Web Opinion

Jonathan David’s goalscoring record speaks for itself. It’s understandable why so many clubs are sniffing around the forward, especially considering that his contract expires in 2025 and that is likely to lower the player’s current value.

Hopefully, the rumours have died down merely due to the fact that David is still playing in the Copa America and that the 24-year-old isn’t off of the shortlist of strikers Tottenham were looking at.
