‘A Dream Signing’ ‘Love This Kid’ ‘Not Good Enough’ Newcastle Utd Fans React To Interest In £42m Striker

According to GiveMeSport, Newcastle United is lining up a move for Lille FC striker Jonathan David, however, there has also been interest from West Ham United and Spurs. 

David’s price tag is likely to be at least £25 million, with an estimated value of around £40 million. Lille FC accepts that David will be leaving this summer as his contract expires next year and they will want to sell him for a profit.

Upon hearing the news, Newcastle United fans took to X to voice how they would feel should the Magpies make a move for the 24-year-old.

Who are Newcastle United competing with for David’s signature?

The Magpies aren’t the only Premier League side that are interested in the Lille striker. West Ham United are also keen on signing him and have been linked to the 24-year-old for over two seasons now.

Furthermore, Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea have also been linked with David. Journalist Ben Jacobs said on the London is Blue podcast: “I’d keep an eye on Spurs as well and I’m told that Lille will accept well under £30m, around €30m instead of pounds, so around £25m, so Chelsea could be one to watch there.”

A replacement for Callum Wilson?

Newcastle striker Callum Wilson could be on his way out this summer as many clubs have been in the running for the injury-prone striker.

West Ham is a name that has been touted around Wilson with a move to the Saudi Pro League also looking likely for the 32-year-old.
