Tottenham Hotspur have picked up five points from five league games since Antonio Conte left the north London club last month. Ryan Mason has been tasked with taking charge of their upcoming fixtures as they continue to search for Conte’s successor.
That hasn’t stopped Tottenham from identifying Lille star Jonathan David as a target for the next window.
That’s at least what L’Equipe are reporting on Friday and they add Spurs are attentive to the striker’s situation at the Ligue 1 side.
The French club have ‘very few illusions’ of retaining David next season. A year ago, Lille president Olivier Létang gave word to the player that he will be sold if they receive a convincing offer.
L’Equipe state Tottenham, Manchester United, Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain have all launched a ‘big game of musical chairs’ for David.
It’s difficult to suggest where the frontman could end up next because Spurs, PSG and the Blues still have to sort out their managerial situation.
These clubs are expected to make a lunge for the attacker after gaining clarity on who will be their manager next season.
David has managed 23 goals and four assists from 34 games this season.
