Manchester United are joining the battle for Lille striker Jonathan David.

CBS says United are set to rival Arsenal for the transfer of David.

The Gunners have long been admirers of the Lille forward.

Newcastle, Tottenham and Chelsea may also be interested in a summer swoop.

But Erik ten Hag wants to sign the Canada international to bolster his attack.

Lille are said to want around £42million for the striker.

And Ten Hag may give the green light to Old Trafford chiefs to stump up the cash.

The report adds he has been tracking David since his time at Gent and throughout his two-year spell at Lille.

David, 22, has scored 19 times for the French club this campaign and an impressive 20 in 30 overall for Canada, who qualified for the Qatar 2022 World Cup.

The Dutchman has landed in England and is already plotting his summer overhaul with drastic changes needed.

And a new striker is a high priority.
