    The Canada international scored 23 goals throughout all competitions for the Belgian top-flight side in 2019-20, and both Manchester United and Arsenal have actually held casual talks with his representative Nick Mavromaras.

    French top-flight side Lille OSC have already had a ₤ 2 million quote plus benefits turned down as Gent are claiming a minimum of ₤27 million.

    Leeds might do with a quality and constant goalscorer as they want to develop themselves upon going back to the Premier League next term, and David will be a quality addition.

    Everton are also keeping tabs on the 20- year-old, while Tottenham Hotspur have actually been linked too.

    Liverpool, Ajax, Inter Milan, and FC Porto are also interested in David, and the Elland Roadway outfit will need to act fast to have an opportunity of landing their man.

    Leeds currently have Patrick Bamford as their first- option striker, and while he is best for head coach Marcelo Bielsa’s style of play, he needs somebody to offer him the run for the money after both Eddie Nketiah and Jean Kevin Augustin failed to last term.

    David might be that individual provided his completing expertise and capacity, and it will be fascinating to see if the Yorkshire club will be keen to satisfy Gent’s asking price.
