Aston Villa: Jonathan David backed to join after World Cup

Aston Villa: Jonathan David backed to join after World Cup -Aston Villa News

Aston Villa could make a move for Lille and Canada attacker Jonathan David once the 2022 World Cup is over, according to journalist Pete O’Rourke.

The Lowdown: David looking to star in Qatar

The 22-year-old is a hugely exciting young attacking player, having already scored 41 goals in 111 appearances for Lille, despite his tender years.

David is currently on World Cup duty with Canada, as he looks to make an impression on the biggest stage of all, looking to add to his 22 goals in 35 caps for his country.

The youngster could potentially leave Lille in the January transfer window, and a move to Villa is being talked up.

The Latest: Villa move talked up

Speaking to Give Me Sport, O’Rourke claimed that David could be a transfer target for new Villans boss Unai Emery:

“I’m sure that they will be looking at the World Cup to see if there are any strikers that maybe come to their mind of being potential targets, which Jonathan David, I’m sure, might be. Unai Emery, I think, would like to bring in a marquee striker if he could in January.”

Aston Villa fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the 21/22 season?

The Verdict: Could be a great signing

Villa have been goal-shy too often in the Premier League this season – they have scored 16 times in 15 matches – with the likes of Ollie Watkins and Danny Ings struggling to consistently shine in the final third.

Should Villa move for Conor Gallagher?

Yes

No

David could prove to be an upgrade on both players, with his goalscoring record for club and country speaking volumes about his pedigree, with analyst Danny Corcoran describing him as ‘incredible’.

Whether or not the Lille star sees himself at a Champions League-playing club remains to be seen, but if Emery can entice him to Villa Park, it could prove to be a masterstroke.
