Hammers boss David Moyes is thought to be very keen to bring the 21-year-old striker to the London Stadium next month (TEAMtalk).
The Scot desperately needs to bolster his centre-forward ranks at the London Stadium in January.
More quality competition and cover for Michail Antonio is required as a matter of urgency.
Lille hitman Jonathan David would be an exceptional addition for West Ham. And it seems as though the Hammers may well have a very good chance of signing the fleet-footed 21-year-old.
Jonathan David likes idea of January West Ham move
Calcio Mercato claims that the Canada international wants to join the Hammers next month. The only problem is that he is allegedly also keen on a move to Barcelona.
David Moyes should not hesitate to bring David to the London Stadium.
Described by The Scouting App as a brilliant attacker with bundles of potential, the Lille ace has the kind of ability that would get the fans up off their seats.
He has already scored 18 goals in 24 games for his country and has bagged 14 goals in 25 matches for Lille so far this season (Transfermarkt).
The 21-year-old has a fine record of 64 goals and 20 assists in 156 career games for Lille and Gent combined (Transfermarkt).
David possesses blistering pace, has great movement and most importantly, he has a really high ceiling with which to better himself even further still.
The Canadian attacker will be available for around £25 million in January (The Guardian).
Signing him for that kind of fee should be an absolute no-brainer for West Ham.
David would take our play to a completely different level in the final third. Please make this one happen West Ham!
