TEAMtalk have asserted that Tottenham Hotspur intend to make a move for Lille striker Jonathan David in January.

David has been prolific in Ligue 1 since making the switch to Lille from Gent back in 2020 and the centre-forward has four goals in 12 appearances across all competitions so far this season.

TEAMtalk assert that despite Tottenham’s impressive start to the season, Ange Postecoglou is keen on adding more firepower to his forward line in January.

Should Jonathan David make the move to Spurs?

The North London club have allegedly identified David as a potential upgrade on Richarlison, with the report adding that the Lilywhites have a ‘firm intention’ of making a move for the striker.

It is explained that the 23-year-old is ready to make a step up and would be willing to swap Stade Pierre Mauroy for the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

The publication adds that Spurs are even willing to wait until next summer to sign the Canadian international if they are not able to get a deal for him over the line in January.

Spurs Web Opinion

I fully expect Spurs and Postecoglou to put off their search for a number nine until next summer’s transfer window. I believe that signing a centre-back and a central midfielder would be the club’s top priorities in January.
