Lille striker Jonathan David has been linked with a move to Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United.

Arsenal were the side mostly linked with the 22-year-old striker, but eventually pulled out of the deal.

After 19 goals last season, the Canadian international has continued his fine form this term with nine in 12 appearances.

David still has 3 years left in his contract with Lille, and he has revealed that he’s ready for his next move, which is to any big club interested in him.

“The next step is always growing, having more ambition maybe a bigger club I think,” he told Sky Sports.

“Everyone wants to play for a massive club in their life. So if I had the chance to do it I would go for it, for sure.”

When asked if he suits playing in both the Premier League and La Liga, he added: “I think they are two different leagues. But I think I can adapt to both for sure.

“And I think that the experience I have had here in France, it will help me a lot if I need to adapt to some place else, a lot faster. So yeah, I think both leagues suit me.”
