The East London outfit were linked with a move to sign the £51 million-rated forward just a couple of weeks ago.

Hammers boss David Moyes clearly needs to sign a top-class striker this summer – one that suits his system.

Danny Ings, Michail Antonio and Gianluca Scamacca are all being linked with an exit, and it seems as though Moyes has his heart set on one player in particular to come in to the London Stadium…

Ignazio Genuardi reckons that the two Italian clubs are ready to battle the Hammers for the Canada international’s signature this summer.

Let’s keep our fingers crossed that we manage to win the race for him.

David is a truly elite young talent, and he would be an unbelievably good signing for the Hammers.

He possesses blistering pace and is a real live-wire. The Lille ace is a very good finisher as well. He has already scored 24 goals in 40 games for his country, and bagged 24 goals in 37 Ligue 1 games for Lille this season just gone (Transfermarkt).

Jonathan David possesses everything that West Ham currently lack inside the final third, what with his rapid speed and killer eye for goal.

The Lille forward has incredible movement as well.

£51 million sounds like an awful lot of money for the Hammers to splash out on a striker who is completely unproven in the Premier League.

However, that fee will end up looking like a bargain in a few years, I’m sure of it. I would absolutely love to see David at the London Stadium.
