Jonathan David has been sensational for Gent this season.

With Mesut Ozil and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang both over 30 years old, it seems wise for Arsenal to start tracking some promising attackers that can help the likes of wonderkid Gabriel Martinelli lead the Gunners in the future.

David’s versatility will be a massive appeal to interested clubs. The ace is primarily deployed in a central attacking midfield role, but the ace also has experience of playing as a second striker or lone centre-forward.
