Estadio Deportivo now reveal that the Belgian side have slashed their asking price for the young striker to just £13.5 million due to the financial impact of COVID-19.
The report also reveals that Real Betis are keen on landing the Canadian international this summer and could compete with the Premier League trio for his signature.

With the Belgian league also ending abruptly due to the pandemic, clubs will have taken a huge financial hit. Many of the players in the division will thus be available for cut-price deals this summer and so there will be some great deals to be had. David certainly won’t be the last player whose price is slashed.
