Jonathan David to Liverpool?

Liverpool are reportedly exploring the prospect of signing Lille striker Jonathan David.

The Canadian joined the French outfit from Gent last summer. He registered 13 goals as Lille stunningly won the Ligue 1 title.

Ahead of the new campaign, Lille are willing to sell multiple players as they look to ease their ongoing financial concerns.

David has been linked with a possible exit, and TSN claims that the Reds are long-term admirers of the 21-year-old.

He is reportedly at the top of their wishlist. They are being fancied to make a formal bid to sign the 16-cap international.

The Reds currently have Roberto Firmino as their main striker with Diogo Jota offering competition off the bench.

Firmino had a disappointing 2020/21 season with just nine goals. There are claims that he won't be handed a new deal.

He could be leaving the club next summer. David could be considered as a potential long-term replacement for the Brazilian.

Liverpool start their league campaign at Norwich City on August 14.
