EPL: Arsenal and United target completes Lille move


Arsenal and Man United have failed to capture the signature of Canadian forward, Jonathan David as he has reportedly completed a move to French Ligue 1 outfit, Lille.

Jonathan David is highly rated as he has been consistent in the past two seasons with a total of 48 goals and 20 assists in all, a feat that is amazing for a player at his age.

The 20-year-old forward was seen as a very big prospect by the two Premier League teams and tipped to succeed with English football but they were unable to agree on terms that will give them victory in the chase.

The Gunners and the Red Devils were not alone in the chase of Jonathan David as a list of English Premier League clubs; Leicester City, Leeds United, Brighton, and Crystal Palace were also in the chase.

However, Arsenal are in search of a new forward with reports that that French striker Alexandre Lacazette could be part of the exits at the Emirates Stadium this summer window.

The Gunners team are hoping to cash in from his sale to be able to secure their transfer targets as they are in a battle to compete with other clubs because of funds.

Meanwhile, Man United are also bent on more attacking options ahead of next season.
