Tottenham Hotspur have set their sights on Lille star and Arsenal target Jonathan David, according to reports.
The Lowdown: Spurs transfer planning?
The Lilywhites find themselves chasing Champions League qualification for a second-successive campaign but manager Antonio Conte may need to be backed again in the transfer market to make this a reality.
In that time, they conceded 11 goals, potentially highlighting some vulnerability and the need to strengthen their ranks further.
Conte also has just Harry Kane as his natural senior striking option, but a recent claim has suggested that Spurs may want to change that.
The Latest: Spurs eye David move…
Italian sources state that Conte’s side hold a real interest in signing Canada international David amid his impressive season in Ligue 1.
This information comes from Calciomercato, who report that Tottenham are ‘very interested’ in signing the 22-year-old – but they’re not alone.
Arch rivals Arsenal are also hot on his trail and it is believed that a ‘heated north London derby could arise’ for David’s signature.
The Verdict: Make the move?
In terms of back up for Kane, the French top flight forward possesses undeniable quality.
However, with the presence of Arsenal, a potential auction could arise for David’s signature and any inflated price demands could thwart Conte’s attempts to bring him to N17.
This may well be one to keep an eye on heading into January.
