Tottenham are looking to add a forward to Ange Postecoglou's options this summer with Lille striker Jonathan David on the shortlist but Feyenoord striker Santiago Gimenez is not among those who are believed to be on it.

football.london understands that Tottenham have compiled a shortlist of forwards who fit their profile of signing players for the present and long-term and therefore are at the most aged in their mid-twenties or younger.

Lille striker Jonathan David is one of the names high on that list with the club having followed the Canada international for some time. The Brooklyn-born 24-year-old, currently at the Copa America, netted 26 goals in 47 matches this season for Lille, having hit the same number the previous season for the Ligue 1 outfit and is a player of serious interest to Spurs.

David's contract runs out in 2025 which could mean he is available for a lower fee than in previous summers, with some reports suggesting a £25million price tag rests on his shoulders once he returns from the Copa America next month. The Canada striker took on Tottenham vice-captain Cristian Romero on Friday night at the tournament, with Argentina running out 2-0 victors.

What a load of horseshit. If there's a list, then who else is on it? Just how high on the list is he? Who's above him? Or did someone just cop a sneaky glance at it over someone's shoulder whilst they were having a slash. (Yes, someone at the club was having a slash whilst reading the list. Come on, if we're going to live in lala land then allow me some room)

This place ranks somewhere between the Beano and Teabaggers World for credibility. If it were me in charge of deciding what sources get posted they wouldn't be anywhere near SC. Thankfully, for you lot, i'm not :D

Fuck me

It’s not a Spurs transfer window unless you end up pining after the players you were linked with and dismissed…would rather have Toney than this guy.

Plus we have already had a short lived Mckennie link, just need Bremer and Zaniolo to get Transfer Link Bingo.

We've been watching him for a few years now it seems. We get linked almost every summer, at least thats what it feels like at least. Hoping he's not a top target tbh.
The striker pool is so painfully small that the same names get touted.

We either go budget busting on an Isak/Vlahovic/Gyokeres or we stick with Parrott/Scarlett et al (backing up Richarlison obviously) - I don't believe in costly short term stop gaps here at CF when we can remedy other positions.

David has been linked to Chelsea very recently (who hasn't) so there's a chance this is agent driven as it's no secret that he will leave this Summer.

I mean if Ali Gold isn't considered a trustworthy source for club news then we might as well just close the transfer rumours section. No point ever posting news.

Catch quite a few Canadian matches live as I live on the US/Canada border. I've seen him about 10-15 times for the national team and have always thought meh...

But.. if I look at his positives he works hard for the team, presses well, and has over 10 league goals in all 6 of his seasons in Europe.

I still try to think if he's in Ange's system his goal will be to lead any press and score chances in the box and I think he can do that at a good rate.. but overall, like many others, I think his overall game is meh

David is a prolific goal scorer where he has been, which ever level he played at. He would suit our needs perfectly interms of being a high press mobile striker who is good in box. Having said that , I prefer more physical no9 like Openda. I am fine with David too - view him as far better option than Giminez.

Agree 100%. I would be more then okay going for a smaller name CF If he looked to have real potential but as you say in general the market for established names is really rather bare for CF's. Sesko was the only one that really felt like potentially manageable and the perfect fit. Openda, Gyokeres etc just don't seem realistic for us with our budget.

And that, ladies and gentlemen is how they do it.
They saw no one wanted Toney, so they release names of others we want less until we want Toney.
they then buy toney and we're so happy to not get someone else that its a great move by the club

Agree. If not we might as well go out and try and buy a few in the £20/25 million range that hit all the data sets we want and hope one comes good. The market is so bad, I'd almost more hope we shore up the defence with some better midfield and tactics and roll the dice on that. We cant go into the season with Son and Richy as the central striker either. We need good finishers who are technical and work hard up front.

Stop conceding so many goals and hope we get someoen who can bang a decent amount in.

Wayne Veysey, who’s meant to have good sources when it comes to Tottenham, confirms we’ve made contact with David’s representatives
