Italian transfer guru Fabrizio Romano reports that RB Leipzig, among others, are interested in making a play for Canadian striker Jonathan David.

David was linked with a switch to FC Bayern München last summer as a potential replacement for the departed Robert Lewandowski. In the end, the price tag (David was considered worth upwards of €70 million at the time) proved too much for the Bavarian club tangentially interested in bringing David in to serve alongside countryman Alphonso Davies.
David's estimated worth has dropped a bit after a disappointing World Cup. A well-monetized club such as Leipzig could sign the player without much concern over the outlay. The current joint top-scorer in the French top division's contract with his current Ligue 1 side runs through 2025. David has netted 15 goals and chipped in four assists for Lille thus far this season.

They are looking at solutions internally, but it seems difficult as very expensive one.
