ARSENAL, Everton, and Leicester are among SEVEN clubs tracking Gent starlet Jonathan David, according to reports.
The Canada International has enjoyed a stunning season at the Belgian outfit, scoring 21 goals and recording 10 assists from 35 games.
And according to Jeunes Footeux his form has led Premier League giants Arsenal, Everton and Leicester to all register an interest in signing him.
Yet the English trio will reportedly have to rival Bundesliga pacesetters RB Leipzig, as well as Italian duo Napoli and Lazio for £18million David.
Lyon were also considering a move for the 20-year-old in January, and are likely to revive their bid to land him in the summer.
The French side may need a replacement for star man Moussa Dembele, who is a key target for both Manchester United and Chelsea.
The same can be said for Leipzig, who seem resigned to losing striker Timo Werner to either Bayern Munich or Liverpool.

Arsenal meanwhile face a potential mass exodus this summer, with six senior players, including top earners Mesut Ozil and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, out of contract in less than 18 months’ time.
David has been hailed as the most flexible forward in the Belgian top-flight, with the youngster capable of fitting in across the front-line.
A key boost for Mikel Arteta will be the youngster’s capability to be able to play as an attacking midfielder, a second striker, as well as a lone man up top.
