Arsenal interested in unsettled Lille striker Jonathan David.

Arsenal are weighing up a move for unsettled Lille striker Jonathan David.

The London Evening Standard says the Gunners are monitoring his progress, whilst having also tracked him during his time with Belgian outfit Gent.

David himself is a self-confessed Arsenal supporter but turned down a move to the Emirates Stadium before eventually completing a transfer to Lille, explaining that his decision came down to a potential lack of game time in north London.

"Everyone knows the Premier League is a high-quality league," he told France Bleu Nord in the past.

"But my choice was dictated by the fact that above all, I wanted to be sure of playing.

"My choice was made quite early. But I understand that it took a little while to finalise between the two clubs.

"Gent wanted to keep me one more season, but I had made my choice and they respected it.

"I always knew it was going to be done, even if it took a little while. I really liked the sports project that Luis Campos [Lille's sporting director] and the club management sold to me.

"That's really what encouraged me to join Lille. In fact, I especially wanted to join a club where I know that I will keep playing and getting better. There is a very good team here with very good players."
