Prolific Genk striker Jonathan David has spoken about his desire to leave the Belgian club to further his career.

The Canadian international has impressed in Belgian top flight having scoring 23 goals and providing 10 assists in all competitions during the current campaign (transfermarkt).

His form in front of goal has seen the 20-year-old linked with a number of Premier League clubs including Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal and Liverpool (Walfoot).

There has also been interest from the continent from Germany with Bayern Munich, Bayer Leverkusen, Borussia Monchengladbach and RB Leipzig all said to be monitoring the forward’s situation (Transfermarkt).

David has revealed that he believes it is time to leave Genk and has his eyes set on a move to the Bundesliga after claiming that the German top flight is best suited to his game in order to continue to progress.

David told Sky Sports: “It’s time for me to move and go somewhere where I can keep developing and get to the potential that I have. The league that would suit me the most right now is the Bundesliga.

“It’s similar to the Belgian league in terms of the tempo and the physicality, but obviously the quality is higher in Germany and there is more competition”.

Given his relatively young age, David would have been the perfect understudy to Harry Kane but it appears that he already has his heart set on a move to Germany.

Spurs certainly need to bring in another forward to help relieve Kane of the goalscoring burden in North London. We all saw how the club struggled in the absence of both Kane and Son in February.
