West Ham’s David Moyes set to begin talks with 21-year-old striker

West Ham boss David Moyes is reportedly set to begin talks with Lille forward, Jonathan David.

Who is Jonathan David?

Jonathan David is currently plying his trade in Ligue 1 with Lille.

David was signed by Lille in August of 2020 for a fee reported to be just over £24m.

The New York-born hitman went on to enjoy a solid debut campaign in France, netting 13 and assisting three in 37 outings as Lille piped PSG to the Ligue 1 title.

Lille’s form, on the whole, has since dropped off a fair bit, but David has only continued to improve.

In 26 outings across all competitions this term, David has already scored 15 goals. He has also matched his 2020/21 league goal tally in 19 fewer games.

All of this comes with David still only just 21 years old, suggesting that the Canadian is still some way off reaching his peak.

As a result, it is not at all surprising to see David attracting interest from the Premier League.

As per Goal citing Spanish outlet Fichajes:

West Ham boss David Moyes is set to begin transfer talks with Lille forward Jonathan David – according to Fichajes. The Hammers have already been negotiating a deal for the 21-year-old ahead of the January transfer window, with Moyes now ready to step in and finalise terms.

David would, if signed, add some much-needed depth to West Ham’s striking ranks, which currently relies almost solely on an ageing, injury-prone Michail Antonio who has struggled for goals of late.

No potential fee for David is mentioned.
