Fabrizio Romano: Leipzig show interest in Canadian striker

Italian transfer guru Fabrizio Romano reports that RB Leipzig, among others, are interested in making a play for Canadian striker Jonathan David. 
After transferring to LOSC Lille for €27 million in the summer of 2020, Canadian striker Jonathan David has seen his estimated market worth jump to some €45 million. The 23-year-old has netted 49 goals and pocketed nine assists in 122 appearances across all competitions for the 2020/21 French Ligue 1 champions. David has also scored 22 goals in 38 caps for country.

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.
