Chelsea are reportedly interested in signing Lille centre-forward Jonathan David and this has got fans really excited.
According to TSN, Chelsea are one of a few clubs to make an enquiry for the 22-year-old striker. Barcelona and Tottenham have been in contact with French club Lille, too.
The Canadian international has scored 15 goals in the French league and Champions League this season and is joint-top goalscorer (12) in Ligue 1 this season alongside Monaco’s Wissam Ben Yedder, scoring two more than Paris Saint-Germain’s sensation Kylian Mbappe.
Chelsea fans will have the opportunity to watch the 22 year old striker when the Blues face Lille in the last-16 of the Champions League.
