With talk that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang could be a target for Paris Saint-Germain going forward, Chelsea could be, yet again, in need of a new striker.

The Gabon international has been successful under Graham Potter to date, scoring in both games against his former side, Milan, and the 2-1 vs Crystal Palace, but at 33 years of age, he was never going to be staying forever.

That’s why it isn’t surprising to see Chelsea scouring the market for a successor, even with Armando Broja already at the club, and Jonathan David is the latest name to be linked with a move to Stamford Bridge.

While his first two seasons at Lille haven’t quite reached the expected heights his move from Gent promised, the Canada international has hit the ground running under new manager Paulo Fonseca this season, finding the back of the net nine times in 11 league games to date, as well as picking up two assists.

He scored two at the weekend in a 3-0 away win against Strasbourg, confirming he is one of the more in-form goalscorers of the moment.

This has allegedly caught the eye of Graham Potter, according to Jeunes Footeux, who have an article on the matter on Monday.

They state the new Chelsea manager ‘wants to sign a new striker’ in January, and has ‘ticked the name of Jonathan David on his shortlist’.

It’s well known that Todd Boehly is prepared to spend to revamp his club’s squad, and Lille will want a fair bit of money for their star, having always managed to sell well abroad, with Nicolas Pépé and Victor Osimhen good examples of that.

That’s why Jeunes Footeux state that if David is interested in leaving his currently club, Chelsea will ‘need to show themselves financially convincing, with an offer of at least €60m’ needed to make the Ligue 1 side consider it.
